~ Godspeed, Mr. Sendak. I know most people are most grateful for his picture book Where the Wild Things Are, but my first memory of Mr. Sendak’s work includes the amazing sets from the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. Then, a lot later in life, my daughter Natalie fell head over heels in love with Little Bear, both the books and the PBS series. We spent many hours enjoying Little Bear’s adventures with Emily and Duck and all the others. His talent will be missed.
