Who Was Maurice Sendak? by Janet B. Pascal

This is a great series – I’m going to encourage my students to read them. The biography reads like a story, a kind of narrative nonfiction.
Cool fact: Rosie, from the Sign on Rosie’s Door, was based on a real person. Sendak watched her through his window and built a story around her and her sassy attitude.
