Books by Maurice Sendak

May 10-16 is Children’s Book Week!

In celebration, I’m posting 2 books by Maurice Sendak.  One is a classic, one is a lesser known story that I’ve had a copy of since I was a kid.

The classic tale, I still have not seen the movie because if I hate it I will be so disappointed.  The book is available on Amazon for $9.55.  I didn’t have a copy of this book for some reason, I bought one a few years back as my husband had never read it!

This story, Dear Mili, is a completely different beast, the story is sad and beautiful at the same time.  Grimm is listed as an author as this story was “preserved in a letter written to a young girl, Mili, in 1816 and not discovered until 1983,” when Sendak picked it up and illustrated it.  I don’t remember who bought this book for me but I didn’t really understand the story until I was older, but the book is absolutely stunning, and would be a great addition to anyone’s library.  This book is available for $6.95 from Amazon.
