about this item

Maurice Sendak transforms his 1970s Sesame Street animated short into a rollicking picture book starring a piglet in need of a party. After eight, sad birthday party-less years, Bumble's feckless family of pigs finally overindulged too much and "got ate" themselves. Sent to live with his aunt Adeline, Bumble gets a very pleasant ninth birthday party, complete with cake. But after his aunt leaves for work, the piglet launches a wild, raucous affair filled with costumed participants of all kinds. Cultural references abound, and there is a fun play on numbers throughout. With Sendak's trademark chimerical artwork creating a story within a story.
