This small funny book, filled with words and pictures, conveys an important moral --- the fact that the best part of living is doing, feeling, being together. Sendak's vignettes, or big full spread tableaux are memorable, funny, accurate. I found this book after about 45 years -- thanks to Alibris, of course --- and it's better than I remembered, at the same time, some of those tiny vignettes are just the same. Good for children, but not a baby book -- fun to read with a little kid and to talk about what's going on --- Thank you Alibris! Thank you Miss Krauss! Thank you Mr. Sendak!
Publishers Weekly, 1989-09-29 First published in 1952, this hilarious classic is now available in paperback to a new generation. Krauss's definitions--from ``toes are to wiggle'' to ``a hat is to wear on a train''--tell what's what--and Sendak's inimitable early illustrations show how. All ages. (Sept.)
