A book the whole family will enjoy hearing again and again.
on January 10, 1999
I first found this book in my school library in New Zealand 32 years ago! Took it home to read to my baby sister, and the whole family sat around listening with delight. We still love it all these years later. Sendak's story and illustrations capture the childhood of the average kid - with humour and whimsy, and true psychology, but totally without condescension. In my family, this is considered a classic. Guard your copy well - future generations will appreciate it too!
