The Juniper Tree: Pictures by Maurice Sendak

The Juniper Tree and other Tales from Grimm
Selected by Lore Segal and Maurice Sendak
illustrated by Maurice Sendak

Happy Mother's Day to me! My husband surprised me with a Boxed Set of Grimm Fairytales illustrated by the late Mr. Maurice Sendak. Unfortunately Mr. Sendak is no longer with us, he passed away on Tuesday, so this gift is extremely special to me. 

 lovingly wrapped and quickly delivered by Vanilla Dog, a very quaint shop over at Etsy.
Needless to say I will be visiting again soon!

Here are a few sample illustrations:

They are a bit on the Grimm side, so I won't be sharing them with The Boog until she is a bit older. For now, they make an attractive addition to my vintage library!
