Open House For Butterflies

Open House for Butterflies
Ruth Krauss and Maurice Sendak ~ Harper & Row, 1960

Ruth Krauss... classic weirdness, but the Sendak illustrations make up for it. Ha ha ha.

I want to learn a screaming song, a loud, energy purging, screaming song. :^D

My fave by Krauss: A Hole is to Dig. Her sayings are so genuinely child-like that I sometimes wonder if she interviewed a bunch of kindergarteners!
