Dear, Dear Readers,
I have to say that as a child, I was greatly inspired and influenced by the amazing imagination of Mr. Sendak. When I was little, my mom bought me a book called Pierre: A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and a Prologue that had an accompanying record of Carole King singing the words. I read and listened to this for hours on end. It was yet another moment of absolute childhood wonder for me crafted by Mr. Sendak (and Ms. King!).
I will forever be grateful to Mr. Sendak for not only fostering my imagination but inspiring me as a child to become the writer I am today!
Rest In Peace, Mr. Sendak
