Praise
"Charming illustrations in mixed media include cloth and paper pattern pieces, with lines of stitching and ribbons cleverly dividing pages with multiple spot illustrations. The succinct text has the satisfying feel of a folk tale, and it's the sort of story children will want to hear over and over--and the kind adults won't mind reading many times."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In this celebration of the joy of giving, one snowy Christmas eve, a king buys some soft, red cloth to make the perfect Christmas gift for his daughter. Little does he know that the left-over cloth will be used to make presents for many more of the kingdom's inhabitants, right down to the last teeny bit of cloth which is made into a scarf just right for a mouse.
Annotation The purchase of lush red fabric meant for a princess inadvertently touches the lives of many inhabitants of the kingdom in this holiday picture book. The king brings home red cloth from the market for the royal seamstresses to transform into a cloak for his daughter. Stowed by a service door, the leftover fabric is taken by a maid, who makes a jacket for her mother. Her scraps are then taken by a badger to create a hat, and so on, until even a little, tiny mouse has a colorful scarf. With lovely mixed-media illustrations that makes use of sewing materials cleverly.
