Presto and Zesto in Limboland

release date: Sep 04, 2018
Presto and Zesto in Limboland
“The pictures are vintage Sendak: wry, wild, and with all sorts of mysteries tucked away in the corners. Yorinks, using his trademark clever nonsense iced with irony, reveals a tale that links everything together in riotous fashion. An unexpected gift.” —Booklist (starred review) “The images hold some of the irrational, dreamlike childhood fears that Sendak returned to throughout his life as an artist, but Yorinks’s broad humor makes the menace as easy to push aside as a theater curtain. It’s a joy.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Fans of Maurice Sendak''s Caldecott Medal-winning Where the Wild Things Are will love Presto and Zesto in Limboland—a never-before-published picture book collaboration between Maurice Sendak and Arthur Yorinks, author of Caldecott Medal winner Hey, Al. This marvelous tale tells the story of two friends, Presto and Zesto, and how they find themselves lost in the magical, mysterious place called Limboland. Author Arthur Yorinks said: “Nearly twenty years ago, Maurice and I, inspired by our friendship, conceived this book about two friends making their way in a very mixed-up world.” The story indeed turns the world upside down and on its head as Presto and Zesto wander into the alternate universe of Limboland. And, in the best and most familiar Sendak and Yorinks tradition, the rest of the story is an attempt to find their way home past a jumbled cast of characters. This is the third collaboration between Yorinks and Sendak, following The Miami Giant (1995) and Mommy? (2006), and is an homage to their long-time friendship.

Bumble-Ardy

release date: Sep 06, 2011
Bumble-Ardy
Since the publication of his classic Outside Over There in 1981, Maurice Sendak’s book illustrations have focused on interpreting the texts of such authors as James Marshall, Tony Kushner, Wilhelm Grimm, Ruth Krauss, Herman Melville, and Mother Goose. And beginning in 1980, with his sets and costumes for The Magic Flute, Sendak launched a busy second career as the designer of stage productions of opera and ballet. Now comes Bumble-Ardy, the first book he has written as well as illustrated in thirty years. Bumble-Ardy has evolved from an animated segment for Sesame Street to a glorious picture book about a mischievous pig who reaches the age of nine without ever having a birthday party. But all that changes when Bumble-Ardy throws a party for himself and invites all his friends, leading to a wild masquerade that quickly gets out of hand. In this highly anticipated picture book, Sendak once again explores the exuberance of young children and the unshakable love between parent (in this case, an aunt) and child.

Very Far Away

release date: Aug 28, 2018
Very Far Away
Fans of Maurice Sendak''s Caldecott Medal-winning Where the Wild Things Are will love Very Far Away—now back in print! First published in 1957, Very Far Away is the second book Sendak both wrote and illustrated. A young boy with a new baby sibling must learn to cope with his mother''s sudden lack of attention, so he sets off to find "very far away." The Chicago Sunday Tribune praised Very Far Away, saying, "Maurice Sendak''s new picture story has all the charm and originality of his other work—plus an extra dash of humor and sense of kinship with small boys." First published in 1957 and now back in print, Very Far Away is Maurice Sendak at his early best.

The Sign on Rosie's Door

release date: Oct 15, 2002
The Sign on Rosie's Door
There was a sign on Rosie''s door that said, "If you want to know a secret, knock three times." Kathy, Rosie''s good friend, knocked three times and learned the secret-that Rosie was no longer Rosie, but Alinda, the lovely lady singer. Adventures with Alinda were fun for Kathy and Sal and Pudgy and Dolly. Even Lenny, who occasionally didn''t believe in Alinda, was delighted by the Fourth of July celebration that Alinda, with the help of the Magic Man, held. At the end of the celebration, Alinda was gone forever, and Rosie had returned, but she soon found something else nice to be. Maurice Sendak, the well-known artist and author-illustrator of Kenny''s Window and Very Far Away, has written a story of real children, playing as only children know how. Young readers will wish that Alinda lived next door to them.

Hector Protector and As I Went Over the Water

release date: Nov 06, 2001
Hector Protector and As I Went Over the Water
Maurice Sendak has interpreted these old'' Mother Goose rhymes in animated sequences that have the aliveness and immediacy of a child''s own imaginings. There is little in these verses to suggest the settings, the characterizations, the unforeseen twists and turns of Mr. Sendak''s fantastical picture-stories. They extend the boundaries of the short rhymes and add surprising dimension. The many admirers of Where the Wild Things Are and The Nutshell Library will recognize in Hector Protector and the seafarer of As I Went Over the Water the same pugnaciousness, love of mischief, and derring-do that characterize Max and Pierre. And they will agree that Mr. Sendak has created a true picture book of astounding originality.
