Using just twenty-seven words, the author describes the adventures of a boy, his dog, and a lively troupe of bears, in a story first published in 1948 and now re-illustrated with the art of an award-winning illustrator.

HARPERCOLL

With just 27 words, the inimitable Ruth Krauss created a charming little universe.

Now Maurice Sendak has turned her bears into a troupe of players in a slapstick comedy starring a familiar boy in a wolf suit.

Maurice Sendak’s unmistakable illustrative style shows a variety of ursines tumbling alongside this simple tone poem, an iteration of almost a single word as a very familiar boy chases after an envious dog and his ill-gotten prize. It’s a book meant to appeal to very young children, especially those in footie pajamas, who are still clutching on to their scraggly ragged, well-loved fluffy toys.
