Maurice Sendak Returns!!!!!

It has been 30 years since the author of my favourite book of all times (Where The Wild Things Are) has published as an author/illustrator. But Maurice Sendak is making a return to the world where he is, undoubtedly, one of the true masters. Set for publication this September, Bumble-Ardy is the tale of a young pig who, having reached nine years of age, has never had a birthday party. So, he decides to throw his own.
Publisher HarperCollins "promises Bumble's party will be "a wild masquerade that quickly gets out of hand", with the author once again exploring "the exuberance of young children and the unshakeable love between parent (in this case, an aunt) and child". 
 Published on the 6th of September, personally, I can't wait!
