Nutshell Library


Author: Maurice Sendak

Illustrator: Maurice Sendak

The year before Caldecott Medalist Maurice Sendak introduced his classic Where the Wild Things Are , he had a huge hit with his beautiful, hand-sized, and oh so charming The Nutshell Library.

Containing the original pocket-size versions of the perennial favorites Alligators All Around, Chicken Soup with Rice, One Was Johnny, and Pierre, this small boxed set library is truly the perfect stocking stuffer.

Now, after being unavailable for over a year-and-a-half. Finally, it is available again for families to share and treasure!

Learn the alphabet with silly alligators, drink chicken soup with rice and discover the months of the year, count visitors with a boy named Johnny, and survive a scare with a boy who doesn't care. Endless adventures await in these lyrical stories that children, and their grown-up readers, will love reading and sharing over and over again.
