His editor Ursula Nordstrom suggested to Hilary Knight that he create a Christmas set in 1963. Its publication, however outraged Sendak because he saw it as an infringement on his original work. Harper & Row did not want to upset either artist, so it was agreed that the Christmas Nutshell Library would never be reprinted. A rare and appealing Sendak imitation by the artist of ELOISE (1954)En savoir plus
