Description
Originally published in 1962 as one of the tiny books in Maurice Sendak's Nutshell Library, this delightful cautionary tale is presented in a larger (though still compact) paperback edition, starring a willfully indifferent lad named Pierre, his dismayed parents, and an unexpected (and hungry) lion. The problem is that Pierre doesn't care about anything at all. "'What would you like to eat?' 'I don't care!' 'Some lovely cream of wheat?' 'I don't care!' 'Don't sit backwards on your chair.' 'I don't care!' 'Or pour syrup on your hair.' 'I don't care!'" So his parents simply leave him there. The boy doesn't even care when the lion shows up, promising to eat himóbut Pierre's attitude is about to change. Accented with yellow and blue, the wonderfully expressive ink cartoons illuminate five very brief chapters, with decorative headers, a prologue, and a one-word moral, for Sendak fans of all ages.
