A LITTLE HOUSE OF YOUR OWN

First impressions of privacy- whether under the dining table, or huddled in bed, or perched in a tree top- are quite imaginatively portrayed by the author of The Giant Story (Harper 1953). A house of one's own has a strong appeal as a place to think, or shut your eyes, or invite friends, and it can be almost anywhere, as the simple blank verse text shows. Though the style is reminiscent of Ruth Krauss, and the tiny drawings by Irene Haas, of Maurice Sendak's work- each in combination here has its own quality.
