If fresh, imaginative writing

“If fresh, imaginative writing and brilliantly animated pictures, all wonderfully syncopated, are the essence of an original picture book, then Mrs. Lovewright and Purrless Her Cat is indeed a dazzling example. With its dry, wry good humor and sympathetic understanding of human — and animal — misbehavior, the book fairly jumps from your hands for the wonder of it.”

— Maurice Sendak

A picture book, yes. But a children’s book? Age range: 4-8 years?

I wonder.
