Arthur Yorinks

Presto and Zesto in Limboland
  • Presto and Zesto in Limboland

  • From Maurice Sendak, the unrivalled illustrator of Where The Wild Things Are, and long-time collaborator and friend Arthur Yorinks.

    This never-before published tale is an imaginative romp through the world of Limboland. Two great friends – a friendship largely inspired by Maurice Sendak's and Arthur Yorkink's own – must brave a monster, a singing cow, and several berserk goats, to complete their quest. And the quest they're undertaking? To find a present in time for the wedding of the sugar beets!

    The pair originally created this tale many years ago, and it has now been reworked by Arthur Yorinks as an ode to their 40-year friendship. With Maurice Sendak's jubilant illustrations and full of the wit and sheer imagination of this creative duo, this new publication is a song to friendship, creativity, and joy. With the classic Maurice Sendak cocktail of depth, spontaneity and humour, this unseen tale will delight fans of both creators.

Arthur Yorinks has written and directed for opera, theatre, dance, film, and radio and is the author of many acclaimed children's books, including Hey, Al, with illustrations by Richard Egielski, which won the Caldecott Medal in 1987. He was Maurice Sendak's friend for 40 years; their other collaborations included Mommy?, The Miami Giant, and the Night Kitchen Theater company, which they co-founded.
