Such a cute story! My daughter enjoyed it, especially the part when he knits her back up.

Mittens and socks always come in pairs. I've yet to be able to purchase only one mitten or one sock, even though my dryer has a bad habit of eating only one at a time!

In SMITTEN, a lost mitten atop a fence and a lonely sock dropped from a laundry basket set about on a quest to find their missing partners.

When the trampling feet of school children, a trip into a waste basket, two dogs, and a subway train get through with them, neither mitten nor sock are looking or feeling their best.

Fortunately, after a trip through the washer and dryer and a visit to a knitting store (and the aid of a helpful how-to book), both mitten and sock are almost as good as new.

And each has found the perfect pair -- in one another!

This is a truly delightful bedtime story, or a book perfect for a beginning reader. After turning the last page, you can't help but be smitten yourself!
