What Do You Say, Dear?

What Do You Say, Dear?
Written by Sesyle Joslin
Illustrated by Maurice Sendak
This was my first and favorite encounter with Maurice Sendak.  Sad perhaps, but true that I did not venture into the land of the Wild Things until I was quite grown, nor travel to the moon with Little Bear until I had little bears of my own.  I had never visited the Night Kitchen.  I had never been outside, over there.  But I knew what to say to a crocodile in the street, how to end a dance with a bear, and thanks to What Do You Do, Dear?, I knew how to exit a library under dangerous circumstances.  If you need a little help with etiquette, or a Sendak fix, why not uncover these treasures at your local library?
