Big News from Maurice Sendak

Another Wild Rumpus is coming? The news on the literary street is that my beloved Maurice Sendak will be coming out with a new book this Fall! Bumble-Ardy, the tale of a pig who has his first birthday a little later than most, will hit bookstores later this year and I couldn’t be more excited. Apparently, the first glimmerings of this book appeared in 1971 on Sesame Street as an animated clip with Bumble-Ardy as a little boy instead of a pig, and now, more than 30 years later, we’ll see this tale come to fruition. Will the pigs still be guzzling wine or will our 21st century opinions turn that wine into water? Here’s the clip…and a sneak peek at the wonder that will inevitably delight us all.
