All throughout, the book emanates Sendak’s greatest lifelong influence - like the verses and drawings of William Blake, Sendak’s visual poetry in We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy is deeply concerned with the human spirit and, especially, with the plight of children.

Weird stuff by Sendak! His inspirations? Two little known nursery rhymes by Mother Goose-"We Are All in the Dumps" and "Jack and Guy"-and seeing a homeless child on the streets of LA sleeping in a cardboard box. In Sendak's inspired hands, "The houses are built without walls" become a children's shantytown; the "baby bit" becomes a rail-thin child of color (looks a bit Ghandi-esque) who wants a family and home worse than anything.

In 1993 Sendak published the picture book, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Gu.

In 1993 Sendak published the picture book, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy. Later in the 1990s, Sendak approached playwright Tony Kushner to write a new English version of the Czech composer Hans Krása's children's Holocaust opera Brundibár. Sendak mentioned in a September 2008 article in The New York Times that he was gay and had lived with his partner, psychoanalyst Eugene Glynn (February 25, 1926 – May 15, 2007), for 50 years before Glynn's death in May 2007. Revealing that he never told his parents, he said, "All I wanted was to be straight so my parents could be happy.

In the first "book's" final spread, Jack and Guy, huddling in the face of the m o o n ( w h o is already looking off . That "Mozart" is Sendak's muse, that he stands for all that is good, genial, constructive in the world, w e all know well.

In the first "book's" final spread, Jack and Guy, huddling in the face of the m o o n ( w h o is already looking off to story n u m b e r 2), clutch each other for solace as, on the facing page, the six waifs hold up their " h o u s e .built without walls": torn and ragged newspapers. The "Jim goes home" refers to the death of the children's illustrator James Marshall, w h o '~r home" on that date, and w h o was a friend to Sendak and, in the view of many of us, a champion for h u m o r and the free imagina- tion and, therefore, a champion for the liberty of children.

The interpretation that Mr. Sendak has imposed on these rhymes is not one you might immediately see as sanctioned by the text. The scene is set in a cardboard city more or less beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Down-and-out kids (some bald, presumably from treatment of AIDS-related cancers) are in tenuous residence there until their little community is disrupted by a pair of rats who steal a small boy and a load of kittens.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. He has published articles, poetry, children's books, and hisThe Annotated Charlotte's Web will be out in Spring 1994. A shorter version of this article appeared in theLos Angeles Times.

He received the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are and is the creator of such classics as In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, Higglety Pigglety Pop!, and Nutshell Library

I think this book is a wonderful book for children for it's powerful hidden message, and the poetic nature of the writing. The only writing in the book is two nursery rhymes in which Maurice Sendak takes a spin on by turning the nursery rhymes into a story of homelessness

The book begins when two evil rats kidnap a kid and some kittens and its up to Jack and Guy to rescue them. Just as the rats take their hostage to the bakery the kid jumps out os their grasp but gets bitten in the process while trying to get to Jack and Guy. The moon, angry at the harsh treatment, carries the boys off and drops them in rye field

We are all in the dumpsFor diamonds are thumps The kittens are gone to St. Paul's!The baby is bitThe moon's in a fitAnd the houses are built Without walls

Jack and GuyWent out in the RyeAnd they found a little boyWith one black eyeCome says Jack let's knock Him on the headNo says GuyLet's buy him some breadYou buy one loafAnd I'll buy twoAnd we'll bring him up As other folk do

Two traditional rhymes from Mother Goose, ingeniously joined and interpreted by Maurice Sendak.

Honestly surprised I hadn't heard of this book a long time ago. Maurice Sendak's works is known 'round the world, but I guess this one wasn't so popular.
