Frosting on the Cake

A new book from celebrated children’s author Maurice Sendak, six years after his death



ARTHUR YORINKS FIRST MET Maurice Sendak in 1970, when Yorinks was 17 and Sendak was 42. “I read an article about him in The New York Times and thought, If I meet this guy, it will help me move out of my parents’ house,” says Yorinks. “It made no sense, but I was determined.”

He remembers their first phone conversation vividly: “Toward the end, Maurice asked me what I thought of Winnie-the-Pooh. I blurted out, ‘Oh, I hate that book.’ There was a pause. I thought, Oh God, I’m an idiot.” Yorinks laughs. “Then he pipes up with, ‘Why don’t you come for lunch next Tuesday?’”
