L. Sendak's work is situated within the history of children's book illustration, and he is compared with numerous contemporary authors. M. Poole begins with a chapter on children's book illustration, in specific the treatment of fairy tales.
MAURICE SENDAK, born in 1928, has turn into America's premier children's book author and illustrator. He's as important - and as adored - as Theodore Geisel (Dr Seuss ). Best recognized for his trilogy of classic picture books - Where the Wild Things Are (1963) , In the Night Kitchen (1970) and Outside Over There (1981) - Sendak has also written many other books (though primarily in children's book form ). His interpretation in the Grimm Brothers, The Juniper Tree, despite the truth that it is much less well-known, could be mentioned to turn into his most accomplished work.
Sendak's superiority amounts to much a lot more than mere technical ability and an instinct for interpreting a text, regardless of whether his personal or that of someone else. His vision is unique, his draughtsmanship par excellence, and his function as a whole lifts him nicely into the ranks from the great illustrators of all time. His sympathy and concern with every book he illustrates mounts to an almost religious obsession when it comes to his own picture books.
