Description:First edition. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper....First edition. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a very good first issue dust jacket with the correct code. The Caledecott medal is adhered to the front panel. A nice copy, rather uncommon signed. Having received nine awards, The Night Kitchen's popularity is evident, but so is its controversy. When three-year-old protagonist Mickey enters the Night Kitchen, he loses his pajamas and is fully naked in some parts of the story. Some critics have objected to Mickey's nudity, which is fully depicted, and others have interpreted sexual innuendo in the proceeding events. Consequently, the book's release in the United States sparked debate, with the inclusion of child nudity frequently noted as morally problematic. The book has been ranked 25th place on the "100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2000" list by the American Library Association.
