Review

"Sendak is the daddy of them all when it comes to picture books - the words, the rhythm and the design are all wonderful." (S Magazine, Sunday Express)

"The greatest picture book ever written" (Chris Riddell, Children's Laureate Guardian)

"Gripping, ingenious and uplifting . . . a shrewd, fierce, healing book" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"A timeless masterpiece. The illustrations, the fabulous monsters, the beautiful cross-hatching, and the surreal, dreamlike narrative beckons the reader to join the adventure. The themes are perfect for inspiring discussion on confronting life's scary things, mastering your fears and being brave, letting off steam, saying goodbye, and the comfort of returning home safe and sound" (Child Education)

"An almost-perfect picture book stuffed with mischief, magic and meaning . . . Has a haunting depth that makes bedtime reading thrilling, a little scary, but also empowering" (Junior)
