Higglety-pigglety pop!This dreamy, slightly dark story, illustrated in Sendak's renowned pen-and-ink style, tells of a gluttonous dog's transformation from someone who cares only about her next salami sandwich to one who would risk her life for a weaker being (while still wondering where that next sandwich is coming from). Caldecott Medal artist Sendak is the brilliantly quirky creator of such classics as Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. (Ages 5 to 9) --Emilie Coulter
The dog has eaten the mop!
The pig's in a hurry
The cat's in a flurry

A wonderful child's book. It was remembered by a 51 year old man fondly, from his childhood. I was delighted
to gift him with this copy for his birthday.
.Maurice Sendak was like Jennie the heroine. He had everything and he had experience. His work appears effortless as rolling out a carpet but is as complex as your ear. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Persop
