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 key to Sendak's success and to the continuing hipness of his book, is that it's hero is not a good child ... the book is, in fact, extraordinarily childcentric, a book written for and about terrible infants, the kind of terrible infants that most children really are and that all adults remain for much of the time" -- David Baddiel The Times "This is my never-fail picture book. The text is very short, but utterly perfect, the illustrations are tremendous" -- Jacqueline Wilson "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
