Synopsis:

As Horace walks home from school, his hands ensconced in a pair of new red mittens, boys from the neighbourhood entice him into a snowball fight. There’s just one problem—his mother has told him to come home straight away, and to keep his mittens dry. Horace retreats before a chorus of teasing, but he cannot quite bring himself to leave the scene of battle. “His New Mittens” is a heartwarming and hilarious story about mothers and sons and “all the traditions of boyhood.”
