This old Mother Goose rhyme (which is here in its authentic version) is, as many of these poems are, curiously evocative and unforgettable. It tells the simple story of kittens who lose their mittens, and momentarily their mother's approval, but find their mittens and achieve a happy resolution. Milo Winter, an insufficiently praised artist, provides the fine illustrations. He is the illustrator for one of our other shaped books, the very popular Three Little Pigs.
