What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Fans of Maurice Sendak’s Caldecott Medal-winning Where the Wild Things Are will love The Sign on Rosie’s Door—_the book that inspired the Broadway musical _Really Rosie, with music by Carole King! There was a sign on Rosie’s door that said, “If you want to know a secret, knock three times.” One day, Kathy, Rosie’s good friend, knocks three times and learns the secret—that Rosie is no longer Rosie, but Alinda, the lovely lady singer. What follows is the story of real children, playing as only children know how. In a starred review, Kirkus praised The Sign on Rosie’s Door, saying, “Maurice Sendak, through both text and illustrations, fuses the appealingly familiar with the magical in a book of outstanding charm.” First published in 1960, The Sign on Rosie’s Door portrays children in their very real world of imagination as only Maurice Sendak can.
