From Our Editors

Few illustrators have captured the imaginations of children as brilliantly as Maurice Sendak has. For 30 years, the creator of such classics as Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop! has ranked among America's best-loved and best-praised artists. Here, Selma G. Lanes pays tribute to this extraordinary talent in The Art of Maurice Sendak. True to his playful spirit, this fun-filled biography contains more than 260 illustrations - including his early sketches - interview excerpts and lively quotes from the artist.
