Read full description of the books Kenny's Window:
Maurice Sendak's first children's book about a boy named Kenny, just like me, who goes on a quest to find a garden he had been dreaming about. To do this, Kenny must answer seven questions given to him by a rooster. Kenny’s pet dog, toy soldiers and stuffed animals and help him out along the way.
When this book was written, Maurice Sendak had been known only as an illustrator but with this book, his he became known as an author and complements in words the poetic quality of his pictures. Kenny is a boy with a window in his room, as most of us have had. He has a dream one night in which he sees a garden he would love to live in and in the garden is a four-legged rooster who gives him seven questions to answer. Kenny hopes the answers will let him live in the garden but as they reveal themselves he learns a thing or two about life-about loving and promising and wanting only what he really wants and about the will-o-the wisp imagination he will never lose. The window has become a key to the wonders of the world. This is a beautiful book written with real feeling.
