9780060254896: In the Night Kitchen

From the acclaimed author-artist Maurice Sendak comes a Caldecott Honor-winning tale of a fantastical dream world. This comic fantasy will delight readers of all ages with playful illustrations and an imaginative world only Sendak could create.

In the Night Kitchen is the classic story of Mickey's adventures in the bakers’ kitchen as they prepare our morning cake. "Milk in the batter! Milk in the batter! We bake cake and nothing’s the matter!" the bakers sing.

The bakers in the night kitchen need more milk for their batter, but then Mickey falls into the cake! They decide to put him in the oven anyway, but Mickey has different plans. He escapes in a plane made of bread dough and helps the bakers find the milk at last.

"A celebration of the primal, sensory world of childhood and an affirmation of its imaginative potency," proclaimed Children's Books and Their Creators.

Review:

Possibly the coolest coloring book I've ever seen, this is the complete In the Night Kitchen printed in black-and-white line art so that readers can add their own colors. Unlike many coloring books that contain pages of poorly rendered poster art, this offers beautiful lines to color within and a comic book-like story structure that's interesting enough to reread after it's been colored.
