New Maurice Sendak book due out soon!

Big news! Maurice Sendak is due to release a new picture this year!

The book is called Bumble-Ardy and, according to Harper Collins, is set to go on sale on September 6. This is the first book that was both written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak since Outside Over There in... (drum roll, please)... 1981!

Bumble-Ardy evolved from an animated segment on Sesame Street that aired in the early 1970s. It's about a mischievous pig who has reached the age of nine without ever having a birthday party. To watch a clip of Bumble-Ardy on YouTube, click here!
We are all forward to it!
