Legendary children's author Maurice Sendak, now 83, has emerged with a new book. In the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, Sendak talks about Bumble-Ardy—the first book in 30 years he has both written and illustrated. The book tells the story of a pig who goes to live with his aunt after his parents are eaten. The little pig, whose neglectful parents never remember to celebrate his birthday, pulls out all the stops for his very first party. The story is based on a piece Sendak created for Sesame Street years ago, but is finally getting the full Sendak treatment. "This is obviously the work of a man who has dementia," Sendak jokes. "But I'm very happy with it."
