Bumble-Ardy

Maurice Sendak

A brand-new picture book from the creator of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE! BUMBLE-ARDY is a glorious picture book about a mischievous pig who has reached the age of nine without ever having had a birthday party. But all that changes when Bumble throws a party for himself and invites all his friends, leading to a wild masquerade that quickly gets out of hand. In this highly anticipated book, Maurice Sendak once again explores the exuberance of young children and the unshakeable love between parent (in this case, an aunt) and child. BUMBLE-ARDY is the first book illustrated and written by Sendak since Outside Over There in 1981.

Review

This is a book about a very mischievous pig! Bumble-Ardy has just turned nine and has never had a birthday party. Determined to mark the occasion, he sets about organising an event without parental consent. Having invited all his friends, the party soon gets out of hand and lands poor Bumble-Ardy in trouble. Who then vows to never turn ten! This is the first book to be written and illustrated by acclaimed author Maurice Sendak since his 1981 publication, Outside Over There. While it’s dark in tone, readers will delight in the rhyming text and the powerful illustrations that are signature styles of Sendak’s.
