  • Sendak is the daddy of them all when it comes to picture books - the words, the rhythm and the design are all wonderful.

    S Magazine, Sunday Express
  • The greatest picture book ever written

    Chris Riddell, Children's Laureate, Guardian
  • The key to Sendak's success and to the continuing hipness of his book, is that it's hero is not a good child . . . the book is, in fact, extraordinarily childcentric, a book written for and about terrible infants, the kind of terrible infants that most children really are and that all adults remain for much of the time

    David Baddiel, The Times
  • This is my never-fail picture book. The text is very short, but utterly perfect, the illustrations are tremendous

    Jacqueline Wilson
  • Gripping, ingenious and uplifting . . . a shrewd, fierce, healing book

    Boyd Tonkin, Independent
