In Grandpa's House

illustrated by Maurice Sendak


About the Book

A loving collaboration between Maurice Sendak, the Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are, and his father, Philip Sendak, now back in print!

When David's parents disappear, the young boy must embark on an epic journey to find out where they have gone.

The New York Times praised In Grandpa's House, saying, "A message from an enchanted past. When you read father's and son's work together, you feel privileged."

First published in 1985 and now back in print, In Grandpa's House is a heartfelt collaboration between father and son.
