Fans of Maurice Sendak's Caldecott Medal-winning Where the Wild Things Are will love Very Far Away—now back in print!
First published in 1957, Very Far Away is the second book Sendak both wrote and illustrated.
A young boy with a new baby sibling must learn to cope with his mother's sudden lack of attention, so he sets off to find "very far away."
The Chicago Sunday Tribune praised Very Far Away, saying, "Maurice Sendak's new picture story has all the charm and originality of his other work—plus an extra dash of humor and sense of kinship with small boys."
