Mommy?

Mommy?

by Arthur Yorinks Illustrated by Maurice Sendak
In this amazing book, the legendary Maurice Sendak re-invents himself yet again with his first ever pop-up book! A little boy is looking for his mommy. In each incredible page-spread he encounters a variety of familiar monsters. Is the boy scared? Of course not! Does he find his mommy at the end? Of course!
Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with babies, toddlers, and monster-lovers of all ages, this book — like all Sendak's books — is satisfying on many levels. A must-have addition to every library story-hour and every children's bookshelf.
