Presto and Zesto in LimbolandMichael di Capua Books #ad - Yorinks, using his trademark clever nonsense iced with irony, reveals a tale that links everything together in riotous fashion. It’s a joy. Publishers weekly starred reviewfans of maurice sendak's caldecott medal-winning Where the Wild Things Are will love Presto and Zesto in Limboland—a never-before-published picture book collaboration between Maurice Sendak and Arthur Yorinks, author of Caldecott Medal winner Hey, Al.
This marvelous tale tells the story of two friends, and how they find themselves lost in the magical, Presto and Zesto, mysterious place called Limboland. Author arthur yorinks said: “nearly twenty years ago, inspired by our friendship, Maurice and I, conceived this book about two friends making their way in a very mixed-up world.
Presto and Zesto in Limboland #ad - The story indeed turns the world upside down and on its head as Presto and Zesto wander into the alternate universe of Limboland. And, in the best and most familiar Sendak and Yorinks tradition, the rest of the story is an attempt to find their way home past a jumbled cast of characters. An unexpected gift.
Booklist starred review“the images hold some of the irrational, dreamlike childhood fears that Sendak returned to throughout his life as an artist, but Yorinks’s broad humor makes the menace as easy to push aside as a theater curtain. The pictures are vintage Sendak: wry, wild, and with all sorts of mysteries tucked away in the corners.
This is the third collaboration between yorinks and Sendak, following The Miami Giant 1995 and Mommy? 2006, and is an homage to their long-time friendship.
