Continuing a two-year program to bring back twenty-two Maurice Sendak treasures long out of print, our second season of publication highlights one of the most successful author-illustrator pairings of all time. A pioneer of great children's literature, Ruth Krausspublished more than thirty books for children during a career that spanned forty years. Krauss and Sendak collaborated on eight books, and we are delighted to reintroduce four of these gems in brand-new editions, together with a favorite Maurice Sendak picture book.

Book Description HarperCollins. 1 Cloth(s), 1983. hard. Book Condition: New. This is a tiny, quiet, music box of a book, originally published in 1955. Ruth Krauss's lyrical story of a young girl and her new colt is as meditative and timeless as a haiku, told as a child experiences things, with a few grace notes from the adult world. Maurice Sendak's watercolors, from the early part of his career, have a soft-edged, dreamlike quality perfectly suited to the story, and occasionally reminiscent of Maurice Chagall's folktale images. Though meant to be read aloud to children up to 6, the book will resonate with gentle spirits of all ages."A little book of unusual beauty."—Horn Book"Another book, sweet and small, with ever the light touch that is Ruth Krauss's and Maurice Sendak's. Its ageless appeal is well defined."—Kirkus Reviews 24. Bookseller Inventory # 71666
