With the same adroit scrutiny that enabled him to recognize a heroine in the Wicked Witch of the West, Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked, reconsiders the oeuvre of the incomparable Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are). Making Mischief pays tribute to the visionary author and illustrator, his profound understanding of children, and his stunningly imaginative and groundbreaking work that carried the picture book so much higher and farther than it had ever flown. A beautifully designed, endlessly fascinating volume, Making Mischief is one master mythmaker’s heartfelt appreciation of another.
