Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year
from We Read it Like This!
To celebrate, we have prepared an extra special reading of In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak, with the following music:
Blue Drag by Django Reinhardt (performed by Allen Toussaint)
Obsesión by Pedro Flores (performed by Marc Ribot y los Cubanos Postizos)
"Kitchen banging and clanging", courtesy of Over the Hillside by Blue Nile
and special guest performance by Ángel Carmona on the ukelele.
Enjoy! Read more about In the Night Kitchen here.
And as a final send off to Sendak, here is his super 'baubled, bangled Christmas tree with soup bowls draped all over me' from Chicken Soup with Rice (The Nutshell Library)
Merry once, merry twice, merry chicken soup with rice!
