Hector Protector & As I Went Over the Water: Two Nursery Rhymes

Maurice Sendak brings to the picture book page two favorite Mother Goose rhymes. His beautiful paintings have the aliveness and immediacy of a child's own imaginings.

The many admirers of Where the Wild Things Are and The Nutshell Library will recognize in Hector Protector and the seafarer of As I Went Over the Water the same pugnaciousness, love of mischief, and derring-do that characterize Max and Pierre. And they will agree that the beloved Maurice Sendak created a picture book of astounding originality.
