  • this is the only thing my summer class was useful for it tipped me off that this book existed for future reference, if there are books that exist that were the source material for childhood favorite movies of mine, i need to be informed in a timely manner not twenty years later, thats just humiliating greg gave me this one years ago, so he is off the hook book show 19 outside over there is terrifically creepy, and it may not have the purple spandex clad david bowie that really makes labyrinth sh [...]


  • I was very familiar withWhere the Wild Things Areand In the Night Kitchen as these have been read many times over in my house I was not, however, acquainted with this book until this summer I was reading Victor LaValle s The Changelingwhich continuously alluded to this book, so I purchased it from right away Aside from winning numerous awards and inspiring LaValle s The Changeling , this is the book that inspired the movie Labrynth.This book is dark, mysterious, magical The father is away at sea [...]


  • I don t know why this lovely book has been challenged and or banned It is absolutely beautiful In fact, so beautiful and appealing that it was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1982 yay Maurice Sendak I LOVED reading this book to my children when they were smaller Recently I gave them each their own copy for their Hope less Chests, so that they can read it to their own children.My children are all in therapy and take strong psychiatric medicines due to their fear of being exchanged by goblins for an ice [...]


  • Much as I hate interpretations of artists based on their books, I ve got to say Sendak has got some serious problems with women The other two books in this trilogy Where The Wild Things Are In The Night Kitchen focus on boys, boys who are wild and crazy and mess things up and take chances and play, play, play with no real consequence because boys will be boys and that is the way of the world They fall in and out of their clothes and wander about with arrogant nakedness, they create violent, myth [...]


  • I really like this book It was the inspiration for the movie the Labyrinth This is a book of art Each page is so beautiful It is stunning The problem with the stunning art is the story It is a scary story My niece is still scared to go to sleep by herself I can t let her read this story of people climbing in a window and stealing away a child She is rescued, but this would be too much for her I know the child is unharmed and the girl saves the day and all, but it was disturbing for me in ways Th [...]


  • I read this to my young daughter without previewing first, and regretted it shortly into it I don t think we ll read this one Why not It s too scary Always a bad word choice then she definitely wants to read itd read it we did Before bed she expressed deep concern that the goblins would take her stuffed Pooh bear away Her baby brother, however, she was not concerned about for some reason The next day she spent an hour pretending to rescue her babies from the goblins The story is beautifully illu [...]


  • What a strange book.This Sendak book inspired the movie Labyrinth I guess it would be perfect for bedtime if you want the kids to have nightmares



  • Outside Over There is a Caldecott Honor Book from the creative mind of Maurice Sendak about how a young girl named Ida must save her sister from a band of goblins Outside Over There may have some scary images and the theme of child kidnapping, but it is still an excellent book full of adventure that many children will love Maurice Sendak s story about a young girl rescuing her little sister is highly creative as it is written in a wonderfully surreal way that makes the story highly interesting t [...]



  • Oh, no no no no Not for me Well, I feel as though there is something the matter with me but I didn t much like this story I think I need to read this to some children and see their responses I confess the only reason I gave Where the Wild Things Are four stars is because over the years, as an adolescent and as an adult, I ve read it to many children, and their enthusiasm has been contagious If I d read it in a void I d have also given it two stars only.I think I d have appreciated the illustrati [...]


  • SUMMARYThis is the story of how Ida s little sister, who can t hardly be two years old, is snatched up by goblins and taken away to Outside, Over There to be a goblin s bride They leave an ice changeling in her place, and when she melts, Ida realizes what has happened However, Ida s father is at sea, and her mother is pining away for missing him, so Ida climbs out her window backward to Outside, Over There, and rescues her sister from the goblins, who, without their hooded cloaks, look exactly l [...]


  • I see why this won a Caldecott honor, but I found the pictures just a touch creepy Although I m sure that s how they were meant to be since they really fit the mood of the story Everybody s head and feet are too big, and there are a LOT of bare feet and naked babies I did like the multiple views shown out the window of the girl s room and while she was flying around outside over there And I did like this better when I found out it was the inspiration for the movie Labyrinth Still, this is a very [...]


  • I had decided that I must have a copy of this when I found it on a list of the most disturbing children s books of all time The reason Goblins steal her baby sister and try to have a goblin wedding with her as the bride And it s the basis for the movie LABYRINTH You say disturbing, I say, Awesome Finally got a copy, and it did not disappoint Aside from the gorgeous art, the story is delightfully strange, and left me not disturbed, but wanting


  • This book fascinated me as a child In struggling to wrap my brain around the writing style, I recognized it, along with the illustrations and the story itself, as an element of the eerie beauty of the whole The story line, the illustrations, and the writing style are all creepy and unsettling, yet I could not take my eyes away It has been years since I read or even thought about this book, but the excerpt from the never ending book quiz sent chills down my spine anew.


  • Maurice Sendak considered this book to be his finest achievement, and I just finished Joseph Cott s recently published There s a Mystery There The Primal Vision of Maurice Sendak in which Cott goes into great depth discussing the book with Sendak he interviewed Sendak numerous times starting in 1976 for Rolling Stone when Sendak was just beginning to work on Outside over There in what became an intensive and sometimes difficult five year creative process for him , as well as two psychologists, a [...]


  • I rarely do a review on childrens books but I felt it necessary to write one on this book This is APPALLING Firstly, the pictures are revolting they look like dead babies when you re reading it to a pre schooler, this is something that needs addressing as young people use visual clues to understand the text, and the illustrations in this book scared my son Secondly, the writing is very poor particularly disappointing when it s written by a world renowned author such as Maurice Sendak It doesn t [...]


  • This is a freaky childrens book wherein the baby is stolen by goblins who want to make the baby a goblin bride Big sister rescues baby, finding out the goblins look like babies too except they wear cloaks Big Sister uses a horn to make the goblin babies dance slowly first, then faster until they couldn t breathe The goblin babies are lured into a churning stream.Baby was found cozy in a big eggshell The whole time mom is depressed because dad is a sailor away at sea Mom sits on a bench for the d [...]


  • Excuse my lack of eloquence when I say the first thing that I thought while reading WHOA This is a dark, nightmarish story, in which the late, SO great Sendak specialized The illustration of the ice child, the frozen changeling put in place after the protagonist s sister is kidnapped by goblins hoping to make her their child bride, is downright horrifying Sendak had his finger on exactly the pulse of what makes childrens, and hence humans, tick What they hope for food dancing beasts escape to be [...]


  • Leave This Book outside over there Not one of Sendak s best in my opinion I m a huge fan of Where the Wild Things Are, but Outside Over There lacks an appeal to children in its text and storyline It s short and honestly a bit boring I was somewhat disturbed at babies being married and kidnapped by goblins and I smaller children would probably find it a bit scary I think the book was probably intended for a second or third grader, but the text and word choice is a bit much for someone of that age [...]


  • Some people think this book is super creepy, and I guess it kind of is, but we like it anyway Big sister Ida has to rescue her little sister from the goblins who have kidnapped her and they leave an ice baby in her place The goblins look like little children themselves, and Ida plays her horn until they dance themselves into a stream andwellyou know I hesitate to even tell people we like this book because like I say, its an odd book with a weird story But both my kids have really liked it That a [...]


  • Sendak s most puzzling and perhaps most brilliant picture book plays complex allegorical games with sibling rivalry and Oedipal tensions, as Ida note that her name contains id loses her sister to goblins, who replace the baby with a changeling ice baby Ida must engage, superficially, in a fairly typical quest type narrative to regain the lost sister, but in doing so she assumes disturbing associations with her mother Probably irreducible to a single meaning, this book is provocative every time I [...]


  • With In the Night Kitchen, among my favorite children s books Gorgeously illustrated, the story of how Ida loses, then finds and rescues, her baby sister from the clutches of goblins, while her mother pines for their father at sea, has all the qualities of a dream Stunning, elusive, epic, Sendak doesn t shy away from showing a child s deepest fears, and revealing her deepest strengths, and he s not afraid of ambiguity either If I had all the money in the world, I d buy all the original artwork a [...]


  • Hauntingly beautiful illustrations fill page after page of this story driven by wonderful art work.Poor Ida has a father who is away at sea Poor Ida has a mother who is absent from parenting and sits in the arbor, with a glassy countenance and forlorn expression, little is in her consciousness but sadness.While Ida tries to quiet the baby by playing her wonder horn to rock the baby to sleep, she turns her back and goblins enter in the window, snatching baby to be a nasty goblins child bride.Ida [...]


  • Sigourney wasn t as captivated by Outside Over There as she was In the Night Kitchen Maybe she was mystified by the story Young Ida is jealous of her baby sister she must help care for the baby while her dad s away cloaked goblins steal the baby while Ida is looking the other direction the goblins leave an ice sculpted changeling in the baby s place Ida gets angry and goes to reclaim the baby Ida overcomes distraction to take her sister back from the goblins who look exactly like the baby Ida co [...]


  • This seems to be a book that most people either love or hate based on the reviews I just skimmed Hate may be too strong a word for my reaction, but I certainly didn t enjoy it I am sure it has meaning or value for some But I find it troublesome The father is away at sea, the mom depressed in the arbor is what the text says , and Ida is watching her baby sister Ida is described as making a serious mistake, never watching, foolish and sly Descriptions that would typically make me feel unsympatheti [...]


  • I loved this classic style picturebook In particular I found the use of perspective and framing very effective When outside whether the garden with Mama or the imaginative adventure to rescue her sister Ida s world becomes a full or 3 4 bleed, inviting the reader along for the adventure and immersing us in her perilous experience When Ida is in her bedroom she stares longingly out the window as the baby is snatched, this is significant, it highlights her desire for a journey The second window is [...]


  • We ve read all of the Caldecott Medal winning books, so now we re working our way through the Caldecott Honor books I have to admit that I ve never been a huge fan of the late Maurice Sendak s books Somehow I just don t seem to get them And once again, I feel the same way about this book The illustrations are colorful and very nicely detailed, and the pictures themselves are fun to look at I loved the gardens and the realistic images of babies But the story just didn t do anything for me Our gir [...]


  • I accidentally read this to the kids one night, then I hid it for just mommy to read alone because there were far too many things to explain at bedtime Some thoughts 1 Sendak wrote dystopian picture books before dystopian was cool In this one, Ida climbed out the window backwards and falls into outside over there In the Night Kitchen, Mickey falls through the dark and past the moon and into the light of the night kitchen In Where the Wild Things Are, Max sails to the Island of the Wild Things 2 [...]


  • Also by the author of Where the Wild Things Are This one contained my favorite illustration by this author so far Page one Look it up.I liked the headless monks, but was soon disappointed to learn that they were in fact troll babies, that is trolls who resemble human children Of course, the babies are never clothed, as is apparently the norm for this illustrator.It concerns me that a 10 year old is tasked with taking care of both her infant sister, and emotionally distant mother who spends all h [...]
