Janee Trasler's spare text and utterly adorable artwork will resonate with anyone who has ever lost a beloved toy.

Praise for Mimi and Bear in the Snow

“The softly textured, substantial shapes of Trasler's illustrations reinforce the subtle emotional narrative--just like Mimi, the pictures have a plainspoken eloquence and an intriguing dimensionality.” —Publishers Weekly

“Trasler's gentle tale beautifully captures a child's love for a dependable, cuddly friend, no matter if it is inanimate . . . Warm and fuzzy and very reassuring.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A sweet, charming story that young children will enjoy.” —School Library Journal
