From Our Editors

Jennie is a little dog who has everything, but she knows there’s more to life. So she packs up her two pillows, two bottles of pills, eyedrops, eardrops and warm wool sweater. She sets out to see the world. In Maurice Sendak’s Higglety Pigglety Pop!, Jennie faces countless dangers in her quest to gain experience. She even puts her head in the mouth of a lion!

Editorial Reviews

“With this book Maurice Sendak again proves his right to be ranked as one of the few modern writers to make a genuine contribution to the great tradition of children's literature. Sendak's development has, in fact, consistently erased the barriers between literature for the child and for the adult.”—Brian O'Doherty, (The New York Times Book Review)
