BUMBLE-ARDY by Maurice Sendak First Edition 2011
Sendak, most recognized for Where the Wild Things Are, once again explores the exuberance of young children and the unshakable love between parent (in this case, an aunt) and child.
Bumble-Ardy evolved from an animated segment for Sesame Street to a glorious picture book about a mischievous pig who reaches the age of nine without ever having a birthday party. But all that changes when Bumble-Ardy throws a party for himself and invites all his friends, leading to a wild masquerade that quickly gets out of hand.
Hardback, great condition. Light shelf wear to dust jacket, inscription inside (see photo) otherwise no marks.
