The heavens are alive with Mr. Sendak's boisterous spirit and creative energy while we here on earth are saddened by his leaving us.

I cried when I heard the news of Sendak's passing. I mourn as I write this. I will be forever indebted to him for his book, "In the Night Kitchen" because after reading it to my four-year-old son, he has expressed acceptance, even pride, of his male body which he did not, which he disliked, before. Truly, so grateful.

Thank you for illustrations for "Little Bear". My son was so enamoured with him. God Bless.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sendak and telling him how reading Where the Wild Things Are as a child led to my love of reading.
As soon as I found out I was having a baby.. I went out and bought that book!
So sorry for your loss.
