This is a wonderfully wild and interactive pop-up extravaganza – the first ever one by one of the best-loved authors Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things are is probably his best known)- that we couldn’t resist featuring even though it’s so difficult for us to show you the 3D beauty and cleverness of it online. If you trust us with our guidance then go ahead and buy it now. If not, then go down to your local bookshop and take a look. We’re confident you’ll fall for it.


Mummy? by Maurice Sendak

When Baby cannot find Mummy he goes looking for her. Along the way, this troublesome tyke meets some ghoulish monsters so scary they literally burst off the page - but they're the ones who are in for a shock! Watch out for the frightening fiends, check behind all closed doors and find out if the brave baby will ever find his mummy.
