What I’m Up To at Kirkus This Week, Plus What I Did Last Week, Featuring a Bit of Art from Maurice SendakFebruary 8th, 2013 by jules
Last Friday over at Kirkus, I wrote here about two recent reissues illustrated by Maurice Sendak — Janice May Udry’s The Moon Jumpers, originally released in 1959 from HarperCollins, as well as I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild’s Pocket Book, edited by the great Iona and Peter Opie.
I Saw Esau was reissued by Candlewick Press at the end of 2012 in honor of the book’s 20th anniversary.
Pictured above is a spread from I Saw Esau.
Until later …
