Maurice Sendak...Please Don't Go, We'll Eat You Up We Love You So!

Sadly, the world of literature lost a great author and illustrator today, Maurice Sendak.

Here is some of his wonderful illustrations from some of his books, both as author and illustrator, and as contributing illustrator. His list of books is so long, this is only a small dip into what he has done.

Enjoy these beautiful pictures. They have made me fondly remember his contribution to children's literature, I hope they do the same for you.
