Dear Mili. Illustrated by Maurice Sendak.

New York: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, 1988. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Once upon a time, Wilhelm Grimm sent a letter to a little girl called Mili. How, nearly 170 years later, in 1983, the letter was rediscovered. How it contained a tale about a lost child and how Maurice Sendak decided to turn the tale into a picture book. The pictures tell a story, and the imagery is saturated with the succession of feelings that are stirred up following the adventures of the little girl who is sent by her mother to hide in the forest while the storms of a terrible war sweep by.
