Now the author knows that you don't draw on the walls or bounce on the bed in a normal house, but this is a very special house. In this house you can draw anywhere you want and you can bring home a skunkey and even a very old lion to eat the stuffing out of the chairs.
In this story a young boy imagines a house filled with a turtle, a giant, a lion, a monkey and some skunkeys.
The mind of a child can go for miles and can laugh and hooie, hooie, hooie. The rules and the boundaries of an ordinary world have disappeared and the fun infectious.
In 1989/1990 Harper Collins brought back 22 of Maurice Sendak's classic stories.
