Saying once, saying twice: Thanks for Chicken Soup with Rice, and all the others

Thank you Maurice Sendak for Pierre and Rosie and Max and chicken soup with rice and the night kitchen, for cracking open the world of children's books to let in the dark and the light.

And for those who can't quite let Maurice Sendak go, which might be all of us,  here's a link to a recent, wonderful  (two part) interview with Stephen Colbert.


  1. Maurice will be missed! I love this interview, Jackie! :0)

  2. I love it, too. Colbert's affection and respect for Maurice Sendak is so clear by the end of the second part. And their banter is just wonderful.

    I'm so glad we have that interview.
