Synopsis

Bumble-Ardy by Maurice Sendak

A brand-new picture book from the creator of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE! BUMBLE-ARDY is a glorious picture book about a mischievous pig who has reached the age of nine without ever having had a birthday party. But all that changes when Bumble throws a party for himself and invites all his friends, leading to a wild masquerade that quickly gets out of hand. In this highly anticipated book, Maurice Sendak once again explores the exuberance of young children and the unshakeable love between parent (in this case, an aunt) and child. BUMBLE-ARDY is the first book illustrated and written by Sendak since Outside Over There in 1981.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
