Maurice Sendak's Last Work "My Brother's Book"

November 27, 2012

Sendak’s last book “My Brother’s Book” will be published in early Feb. 2013. He writes in anticipation of his own death, so it is a far cry from the rambunctious, playful stories he’s best known for. His older brother Jack passed away in 1995 and this story shows how they might be reunited (obviously, in his imagination.) Gentle watercolors and bright hues are also a change from many of his other books. See this review from PW. Listed on Amazon as well.
