Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Continuing a two-year program to bring back twenty-two Maurice Sendak treasures long out of print, our second season of publication highlights one of the most successful author-illustrator pairings of all time. A pioneer of great children's literature, Ruth Krausspublished more than thirty books for children during a career that spanned forty years. Krauss and Sendak collaborated on eight books, and we are delighted to reintroduce four of these gems in brand-new editions, together with a favorite Maurice Sendak picture book.

Synopsis:

Continuing a two-year program to bring back 22 out-of-print Sendak treasures, this reissue highlights his amazing partnership with Krauss, who reveals the innermost feelings of little children. This title, first published in 1960, has been hailed as "the most charming of Ruth Krauss's books"--"Library Journal." Full-color illustrations.

About the Author

Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer’s Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humor and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted a child’s inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children’s literature, including Maurice Sendak and her husband, Crockett Johnson.
