Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many fond memories I am not even sure what prompted me to look up this book this morning, but so happy I was able to find the whole set! Read the covers right off of all of these books when I was young! When I call people Pierre, when they don't care...they just don't get it! :) LOVE THESE BOOKS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Sendak! If you love Sendak you will enjoy the tiny versions. A nice gift. if you can find Really Rosie, the CD of songs that Carole King wrote to bring the books to life - even better! I can hear her cool as a cucumber voice..."There once was a boy named Pierre ...." The animated video Really Rosie is not loved by all (my family loved it once in a while) but the books are fun!
