Ruth Krauss’ whimsical classic offers definitions for everyday things that a child can intuitively understand. Maurice Sendak’s charming illustrations are indicative of his early work; children are portrayed hard at work in unembellished pen and ink drawings. What an excellent addition to any children’s book collection.
