In the night kitchen ISBN: 9780099417477
Sendak, Maurice
Published by Red Fox
This is a nightmare under control. When Mickey falls 'through the dark, out of his clothes on past the moon' into the night kitchen, the bakers try to put him in a cake, mistaking him for the milk. When Mickey escapes, the cake batter becomes his sleep suit, and he pummels some bread dough into an aeroplane to fly to the top of the milk bottle to get milk for the bakers. The images are startling, bizarre, but completely original, and, as Mickey is always on top of the situation, should not be frightening. However, caution is recommended.
