Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The late Sendak received a Caldecott Honor in 1960 for his paintings of a group of children cavorting by moonlight in this quiet story from Udry, which is being rereleased in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of Where the Wild Things Are in 2013. Sendak's images alternate between small, squarish, b&w vignettes — an owl perched on a branch, a woman and her husband poring over a book indoors — and full-bleed scenes of the children's nocturnal play, as they dance and tumble like Matisse figures on the lawn. The hushed quality of Udry's prose ('The warm night-wind tosses our hair. The wind chimes stir') is a lovely companion to the deep blues, greens, and purples of Sendak's paintings, giving the story an enchanting sense of nighttime magic and possibility. Ages 4 — 8."

Synopsis:

"For [children] who have not yet played hide-and-seek at dusk among the trees, and marveled at their long shadows on the grass, this vivid account of what one family of children did will be a fascinating experience."--"San Francisco Chronicle." A Caldecott Honor Book. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Four years before Where the Wild Things Are won the Caldecott Medal, Maurice Sendak produced some of his most spectacular artwork for The Moon Jumpers. Printing technology has greatly improved since this enchanting picture book was first released more than fifty years ago, and now, with new color separations, the reproduction of Maurice Sendak's artwork comes closer to his stunning originals than ever before. Sendak's wondrous starry skies and Janice May Udry's evocative text immediately transport us back to cool, moonlit nights and fill us with the universal warmth of childhood. The Moon Jumpers' timeless beauty and inspiration earned it a Caldecott Honor in 1960 and will surely gather a new generation of fans.
