I dare you not to fall for this clip… even if you can’t understand a word… Or is it that you’re dead inside?
… Des chamallows, des roudoudous, des nougats, des berlingots, des pâtes d’amandes, des guimauves…

Maurice Sendak remembered by Tony Kushner (Guardian)
Over the years, his books became stranger, darker, more complex and more magnificent. He was a very serious artist. With a depth of feeling and intensity that might seem odd in an author and illustrator of children’s books, Maurice believed in art.
