Sendak elaborates a modern tale of multiple themes. It’s not quite what I had remembered! Yet what some may not know is that Sendak wrote and illustrated much more than that one popular book. The baby tears ;op the things in her bag; she almost gets eaten by a lion; she gets lost in the woods; and yet Jennie reaches Castle Yonder, where she, quite contentedly, decides to stay. There is also a theatre company and it turns out she wants to act.

But either way, has a life-lesson on how to appreciate life. She does end up being happy in the end. All I can remember is crying, from the beginning to the end. So very very strange, this book is.

It is both funny and dark, weird and wonderful, with Jennie the terrier who packs her bag and sets off to find Indeed, Jennie, the Sealyham terrier, has everything she could ever want: Even as a child, I read this as a version of Doggie Heaven, and it offered me great comfort when my best dog friend died, and it offers me comfort now with the passing of a great author.


It acts as a catalyst for deeper thought.
