Description: Sendak's original illustrations bring new life to the traditional tale of the grisly-bearded king who wins the hand of the beautiful, yet proud princess.

In true Sendak fashion, characters from his other works make an appearance; and in this case, it is the children from Some Swell Pup who play the main parts of the king and the princess.

Covers lightly creased. Spine slightly rubbed on rear. Pages lightly creased from handling, but remain clean and unmarked. The binding is also unusually tight.

Measures 21.5 cm × 14 cm (8.6″ × 5.6″). 8vo. Unpaginated.

Price: £4.25
