What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Pierre, along with the other three classic Nutshell Library titles (Alligators All Around, Chicken Soup with Rice, and One Was Johnny), is the first board book edition of Maurice Sendak’s original work! You loved Nutshell Library as a miniature collection, and these large board books make it even easier for children to share with their grown-up readers. For over fifty years, children have cared about Pierre, Maurice Sendak’s story about a little boy who doesn’t care about anything. And they will continue to care about this classic cautionary tale in this durable board book format.
