Hes as important - and as adored - as Theodore Geisel (Dr Seuss). Best known for his trilogy of classic picture books - Where the Wild Things Are (1963), In the Night Kitchen (1970) and Outside Over There (1981) - Sendak has also written many other books (though mainly in childrens book form). His interpretation of the Grimm Brothers, The Juniper Tree, although it is less well-known, could be said to be his most accomplished work.This book aims to consider some of Maurice Sendaks most significant works, concentrating on the childrens books and the picture books.

Other chapters explore Sendaks relationship with the movies and art of Walt Disney (which Sendak admires)- his interpretation of classic fairy tales- a brief consideration of the fairy tale form- Sendaks links with the tradition of childrens book illustration- and finally a comparison of Sendaks art with that of other book illustrators.The Oxford Companion to Childrens Literature offers a typical assessment of Maurice Sendak as one of the highpoints of modern childrens book illustration:Quite apart from his outstanding draughtmanship and mastery of styles, Sendaks exploration of the realms of the unconscious in Where the Wild Things Are and its successors lifts his work beyond the confines of the childrens picture book and places it among major art of the 20th century.Joyce Whalley and Tessa Chester write of Sendak:Sendaks superiority amounts to far more than mere technical ability and an instinct for interpreting a text, whether his own or that of someone else.

His sympathy and concern with every book he illustrates mounts to an almost religious obsession when it comes to his own picture books... His vision is unique, his draughtsmanship par excellence, and his work as a whole lifts him well into the ranks of the great illustrators of all time.
