This charming 5x7 book exhibits droll humorous text and adorable black and white pictures for a toddler's delight. Such offerings as 'Grownup means to go to nursery school...' and 'Loveably is a good word to know...' will elicit grins and requests for repeats from small listeners. While not a new book, this one is a classic and should be considered for any children's collection of books in the home.
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.
