Three look-alike bakers pursue their culinary art while most children are asleep. Young children are entranced by the trio of cooks, who are dead ringers for the comedian Oliver Hardy. From the author of "Where the Wild Things Are" which won the Caldecott Medal in 1964.Review:
When asked, Maurice Sendak insisted that he was not a comics artist, but an illustrator. However, it's hard to not notice comics aspects in works like In the Night Kitchen. The child of the story is depicted floating from panel to panel as he drifts through the fantastic dream world of the bakers' kitchen. Sendak's use of multiple panels and integrated hand-lettered text is an interesting contrast to his more traditional children's books containing single-page illustrations such as his wildly popular Where the Wild Things Are.
