Publishers Weekly, 2004-07-05 The Sendak brothers' first children's book collaboration, The Happy Rain (1956) by Jack Sendak, illus. by Maurice Sendak, centers on the fictitious town of Troekan where it rains day and night ("No other village could boast of such fine, glorious rain"). When it stops one day, the villagers seek answers-from a wise old man, a scientist, a philosopher and the mayor. But it is the ingenuity of two children that brings back the joyous, rainy weather.
