When asked, Maurice Sendak insisted that he was once not a comics artist, but an illustrator. Then again, it is hard not to notice comics aspects in works like In the Night Kitchen. The kid of the tale is depicted floating from panel to panel as he drifts in the course of the improbable dream world of the bakers’ kitchen. Sendak’s use of a couple of panels and integrated hand-lettered text is an engaging contrast to his more traditional children’s books containing single-page illustrations such as his wildly popular Where the Wild Things Are.
