9780007509164: My Brother's Book

My Brother’s Book is Maurice Sendak’s last complete work and one that he considered the most important. A moving homage to his brother, Jack, in which Sendak’s poignant verse is paired with exquisite artwork.

Fifty years after the Caldecott Award-winning Where the Wild Things Are was published, comes Maurice Sendak’s homage to his brother, who influenced his love of writing and drawing.

A lyrical story about two brothers, Jack and Guy, who are separated from one another when the brightest star in the sky smashes.

This book redefines what one would expect from Maurice Sendak, while still continuing on the lasting legacy he has created. Sendak has created an exquisite picture book, to be cherished by adults as much as children treasure Where the Wild Things Are.

Review:

Praise for Bumble-Ardy:
“A delight to read aloud” The Daily Telegraph Magazine

Praise for Where the Wild Things Are:
“This is my never-fail picture book. The text is very short, but utterly perfect, the illustrations are tremendous” Jacqueline Wilson

“Gripping, ingenious and uplifting . . . a shrewd, fierce, healing book” The Independent

“An almost-perfect picture book stuffed with mischief, magic and meaning . . . Has a haunting depth that makes bedtime reading thrilling, a little scary, but also empowering” Junior

About the Author:

Maurice Sendak was born in Brooklyn, New York. He began by illustrating other authors' books for children, but the first book that he both wrote and illustrated was Kenny's Window, published in 1956. Since then he has illustrated over 80 books, and has won many awards, including the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are. In 1970 he was the first American to win the Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator's Medal. In 1978 the University of Boston made him Doctor of Humane Letters and in 1983 he won the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal for a 'substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children over a period of years'.
