“’till Luke said ‘BE STILL!’ and tamed them with the old mind trick.”
On the occasion of Maurice Sendak’s passing:
Sendak, of course, wrote “Where the Wild Things Are,” which about all of us have read at one time or another. And which made him famous. He wrote a lot of other stuff, too:
Sendak’s other groundbreaking works include “In the Night Kitchen,” “Outside Over There,” “The Sign on Rosie’s Door,” “Higglety Pigglety Pop!” and “The Nutshell Library.” “Bumble-Ardy,” his first book in 30 years, was published by HarperCollins last year. A posthumous picture book, “My Brother’s Book,” is slated for 2012.
I never heard of any of those, but I’ll bet bookstores will be stocking up soon.
