  • My Favorite Book -- even better today Oct 30, 2008
    by MaryCaroline

    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,
    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!
