I loved Maurice Sendak when I was growing up, and I loved reading his books to my kids when they were little.  I bet this is a great exhibit, for all ages!

Brian...I would love to see this exhibit! I bet it's wonderful. Aclose friend who recently passed, was a childrens books author. She said Sendak was one of the best!....

Jo, the museum is in a mansion that was donated along with its grounds to make Musser Park in Lancaster.

Jeannie, Maurice Sendak is one of my favorites, too.  Seeing the exhibit gave me some insight into how Sendak was trying to help children deal with their fears.

Joan, it's a really nice exhibit.  Your friend was right.  Sendak is a genius in the way he portrays childrens' emotions, and the child-like, playful side of the monsters.
