About the Book

Maurice Sendak brings to the picture book page two favorite Mother Goose rhymes. His beautiful paintings have the aliveness and immediacy of a child's own imaginings.

The many admirers of Where the Wild Things Are and The Nutshell Library will recognize in Hector Protector and the seafarer of As I Went Over the Water the same pugnaciousness, love of mischief, and derring-do that characterize Max and Pierre. And they will agree that the beloved Maurice Sendak created a picture book of astounding originality.

"For collectors and budding readers alike," proclaimed Publishers Weekly.

Critical Praise

“Since Caldecott and Lesley Brooke, nobody has illustrated nursery rhymes this well. These wonderfully funny, charming drawings are just as good as those Mr. Sendak did for Where the Wild Things Are.” — New York Review of Books
