About the Book

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

The village of Troeken is happy with how much it rains—and it rains all the time. But when the sun comes out, the villagers must find a way to bring back the rain.

The New York Herald Tribune Book Review praised The Happy Rain, saying, "The brothers Sendak have had a splendid topsy-turvy time with the village of Troeken . . . A tender, amusing story with pictures perfectly suited to the text."

First published in 1956 and now back in print, The Happy Rain is a special collaboration between brothers.
