The Big Green Book
Author: Robert Graves
Illustrator: Maurice Sendak
The Big Green Book is back in print in the US for the first time since 1985! This is one of Caldecott Medal winner Maurice Sendak’s early illustrated titles, a collaboration with the noted British author of I, Claudius, Robert Graves.
A little boy named Jack discovers a big green book of magic in the attic and learns all sorts of spells—spells to change the look of things, spells to make him old and gray or disappear entirely! Jack makes the most of his new magic powers, and his poor old aunt and uncle are quite bewildered. This enchanting tale is masterfully illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
