The illustrations are unique and the story is full of imagination! Love it! Need I say more?!
I notice it's still among the best-sellers of children's books, so that gives me another clue of how great it is. Now, that's staying power!
To make a long story short, I finally had the joy of reading it and have passed it on to my grandchildren. It's a wonderful, imaginative story. I enjoyed Sendak's style; his streams of consciousness made for smooth reading. And I can tell my grandkids are enjoying it, too. Johnny's reading it now, and he has the broadest smile on his face! (Grandmother's note: His smile lights up the room, warming my heart and making me extra glad I finally broke down and purchased this book.)
Senak is a masterful writer who knows the child's mind and heart. The illustrations are magical.
Another MUST HAVE for your children is the series Cats are Rascals, by Nowiki. Very captivating and touching stories showing the world with cats eyes
