“none of my books come about through ‘ideas’ or by thinking of a particular subject and exclaiming, ‘Gee, that’s terrific; I’ll just put it down!’ They never happen quite that way. They well up. Just as dreams come to us at night, feelings come to me,and I rush to put them down. But these fantasies have to be given a physical form, so I build a kind of house around them – the story – and the painting of the house is the picture-making. Essentially however, it’s a dream or fantasy”.
Maurice Sendak
