That's a great way to honor Sendak. I think most people would throw together a few of the books he's written, but you choose to show his other talents! :D I'd love the chance to own these.

I love Ogden Nash. I have a collection of his animal poems. (I don't know the others, but I always love a new introduction.)


The Duck (Ogden Nash)

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

I received a set of Little Bear books from an aunt who lived in Switzerland when i was a little girl. They were my favorite, read over and over. Then read over and over to my girls now both grown. I feel like I've lost a close friend. RIP Maurice.
