Description


*An Instant Indie Bestseller*

Maurice Sendak’s legacy continues with this playful counting extravaganza for the youngest child. Here is a small reader’s introduction to the magic of Mr. Sendak’s books—a journey that will continue for many years to come.

Prepare to be . . .

Amazed . . .

Dazzled . . .

And mesmerized by Mino’s magic show!

"Counting from 1 to 10 and back again—that’s the concept in this never-before-published book from the renowned children’s book creator. With pure Sendak whimsy, this simple story will grab readers’ attention. Useful as a counting book for young children, this charmer also lends itself to home or classroom discussions of strategies for recognizing and dealing with obstacles and frustration. A newly discovered treasure from a beloved children’s book magician." —School Library Journal (starred review)

"This previously unpublished treasure from the late Sendak recalls the creator’s Nutshell Library in its gentle-hued simplicity. The action runs full circle from mirth to mayhem and back, and droll, controlled sketches order the chaos, highlighting each new development, beat by beat, en route to a satisfying 'all done." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The M emblazoned on his stage podium could just as well stand for Max or Mickey or Maurice, as another little boy with flair, talent, and determination. There’s also drama in the changing expressions on the boy’s face as a magic trick that begins in pride and insouciance starts to overwhelm him. A true Sendak hero, he sets himself to rights. Goes straight to the heart. " —Horn Book (starred review)

A posthumously published tale of overly prolific bunnies from a master of the picture-book form. Visually similar to such Sendak crowd-pleasers as the Nutshell Library titles. Children will be drawn to the escalating tide of fuzzy bunnies and will share the protagonist’s sense of satisfaction at watching them go.  — Kirkus Reviews
