and Maurice Sendak.
The Nutshell Library was and is one of my most treasured items. I remember bringing it with me on the Christopher Robin-like "trips" I would take around my house.
Some of my other favorite Sendak books...
I'll Be You and You Be Me
I am sad, sad that this incredible person and incredible talent is gone.
I am thankful, thankful that I grew up on a healthy diet of Sendak books.
Sendak was a daring dreamer and derring-do deliverer who gave readers an opportunity to be part of his "rumpus."
