When asked, Maurice Sendak insisted that he was not a comics artist, but an illustrator. However, it's tough to not notice comics elements in works like In the Night Kitchen. The child of the story is depicted floating from panel to panel as he drifts by indicates of the fantastic dream world of the bakers' kitchen. Sendak's use of many panels and integrated hand-lettered text is an interesting contrast to his a lot more traditional children's books containing single-page illustrations like his wildly popular Where the Wild Things Are.
