My Brother's Book is Maurice Sendak's last complete work and one that he considered the most important.
A moving homage to his brother, Jack, in which Sendak's poignant verse is paired with exquisite artwork.
Fifty years after the Caldecott Award-winning Where the Wild Things Are was published, comes Maurice Sendak's homage to his brother, who influenced his love of writing and drawing.
A lyrical story about two brothers, Jack and Guy, who are separated from one another when the brightest star in the sky smashes.
This book redefines what one would expect from Maurice Sendak, while still continuing on the lasting legacy he has created.
Sendak has created an exquisite picture book, to be cherished by adults as much as children treasure Where the Wild Things Are.
