>Sendak's marvelous works are destined to charm, and this tape is no exception. Creatures prance, dance, scream and roar through favorites from Alligators All Around (the world's most adorable alphabet rhyme, here sung by Carole King) through the angry-scary Where the Wild Things Are. An interview with the author reveals that he holds In the Night Kitchen most dear. So do we. In fact, at tape's end, Nick turned his room—and then his sister's—inside out, looking for his Night Kitchen book. Could you wish for a better viewing result?
