Mr Rabbit and the lovely present

by Alice Mary Lynch

I have just rediscovered this wonderous story by CHARLOTTE ZOLOTOW with pictures by MAURICE SENDAK. I grew up with it. I had forgotten all about it, but I think it must all have gone into my subconscious. How happy I am to have stumbled upon it once again! Maurice Sendak’s illustrations are hauntingly beautiful, as is the story itself. It really gave me some creative energy today as it brought back this faded childhood memory…here are a few pictures, they are not good quality , but the real book, that is true magic.

Also, last night I dreamt about a white rat. One single white rat. I couldn’t find it. I Might have to make one.
