In the Night Kitchen


Author: Maurice Sendak

First published 25 years ago, this magnificent bedtime fantasy B A 1971 Caldecott Honor Book B tells how little Mickey falls out of bed and into the night kitchen. There, he builds an airplane out of bread dough and flies off to get milk for the bakers so children everywhere can have cake in the morning! This stirring, dreamlike adventure gives young readers and listeners a child's-eye-view of the mystery and magic of night time. Sendak's magnificent artwork is a beautiful homage to the imagery of turn-of-the-century master Winsor McKay and, in this triumphant 25th anniversary edition, is published here in brilliant, new reproductions which shimmer with all the intensity of the originals, making this an ideal treat for reading and sharing with the whole family!
