What's The Moon Jumpers About

Publisher Summary

Four years before Where the Wild Things Are won the Caldecott Medal, Maurice Sendak produced some of his most spectacular artwork for The Moon Jumpers. Printing technology has greatly improved since this enchanting picture book was first released more than fifty years ago, and now, with new color separations, the reproduction of Maurice Sendak’s artwork comes closer to his stunning originals than ever before. Sendak’s wondrous starry skies and Janice May Udry’s evocative text immediately transport us back to cool, moonlit nights and fill us with the universal warmth of childhood. The Moon Jumpers’ timeless beauty and inspiration earned it a Caldecott Honor in 1960 and will surely gather a new generation of fans.
