Kate De Goldi continues her discussion about the influence of children’s books editor Ursula Nordstrom.

This week she looks at the work of Maurice Sendak, from his early collaborations in the 1960s as illustrator for authors such as Ruth Krauss, Charlotte Zolotow and Janice May Udry, to his later solo books (including Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, and Very Far Away).

Other books under discussion may include titles by Ruth Krauss (A Hole is to Dig, The Carrot Seed, A Very Special House, Bears, I Want To Paint My Bathroom Blue, I’ll Be You and You Be Me, The Growing Story), Charlotte Zolotow (Mr Rabbit and the Lovely Present, The Hating Book, I Like To Be Little, Someone New, When the Wind Stops), and Janice May Udry (The Moon Jumpers, Emily’s Autumn) – not all of them illustrated by Sendak.

Kate De Goldi’s new novel, The 10pm Question (Longacre, ISBN 9781877460203) has just been published.
