Kenny's Window

Kenny's Window

by Maurice Sendak Illustrated by Maurice Sendak
Kenny wakes up one night remembering the magical garden he's been dreaming about. A rooster gives him seven questions to answer, which stimulates him into awareness and maturity. He realizes that it is not necessary to discard a dream or hope because it cannot be achieved at the moment.
