Sendak almost always surprises, even when drawing something as mundane as A BREAST-FEEDING BABY. Before you know it, the baby has EATEN HIS MOTHER and is dancing triumphantly on his stool.
"I ate my mother," is the rhyme's last line. Sendak smiles and shrugs, as it he really had no other choice. And if you've ever had any fear of going down the drain with the bath water, there's little nude Charlie, showing it indeed can happen. Charlie comes complete with, well, a private. The mood of the book is fierce and gross, and that's a large component of childhood," says Sendak. He has no children of his own, but for decades he's been among their biggest supporters.
Many write to praise him: "I love your book, 'please marry me." Others aren't so kind: "I hate your book. I hope you die." And then there was the boy who wrote with praise. Sendak wrote back, thanking him, and included a drawing. The boy was so happy he ate the drawing. - - - - - - - - - [ SICK ]
He creates books to help kids in "defending themselves with MAGIC."
