In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection) (1970)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060266686, Hardcover)When asked, Maurice Sendak insisted that he was not a comics artist, but an illustrator. However, it's hard to not notice comics aspects in works like In the Night Kitchen. The child of the story is depicted floating from panel to panel as he drifts through the fantastic dream world of the bakers' kitchen. Sendak's use of multiple panels and integrated hand-lettered text is an interesting contrast to his more traditional children's books containing single-page illustrations such as his wildly popular Where the Wild Things Are.

A little boy's dream-fantasy in which he helps three fat bakers get milk for their cake batter.
