From Maurice Sendak, the Caldecott Medal-winning genius who created Where the Wild Things Are, comes Nutshell Library, which will enchant readers with four classic titles. Containing pocket-size versions of perennial favorites Alligators All Around, Chicken Soup with Rice, One Was Johnny, and Pierre, this pint-size library is perfect for small hands. Learn the alphabet with silly alligators, drink chicken soup with rice every month, count visitors with a boy named Johnny, and survive a scare with a boy who doesn't care. Endless adventures await in these lyrical stories that children, and their grown-up readers, will love reading and sharing over and over again. A wonderful stocking stuffer or baby shower gift, Maurice Sendak's Nutshell Library will evoke powerful memories for many, and the rhymes and stories continue to speak to new generations of little ones. And if you prefer your Nutshell Library books on their own and not quite so tiny, each is also now available in a board book edition.… (more)

Four of Maurice Sendak’s “greatest hits” are collected in this adorable “library” that is sized just right for little readers, so they will believe it is truly meant for them and not adults. (The whole set is only 4 inches tall and 1 and 1/2 inches wide.)

The books include “Pierre,""One Was Johnny,” "Chicken Soup With Rice,” and "Alligators All Around.”

Alligators All Around is an alphabet book. Pierre is about obeying your parents. Chicken Soup with Rice teaches kids the months of the year, and One Was Johnny is a counting book. Not only are the words clever, but the illustrations by Sendak are irresistible.

Evaluation: These are the perfect gift for little children, who will love both the medium and the messages. ( )

In my household, with my children now grown up, we still now and then remark...And So The Lion Ate Pierre....

This set belongs in any home with children. And probably in those without too. ( )

This wonderful, tiny set was made into the movie "Really Rosie" and each story became a song in that story. One was an alphabet book, one was a counting book, one was a book of months and the fourth was a cautionary tale about Pierre who always said "I don't care". This is great for reading aloud for very young children who don't know their alphabet etc. ( )
