Opera and nonsense nursery rhymes

According to Publishers Weekly, a new, fully-illustrated children's book manuscript has been found among the late Maurice Sendak's papers, and will be published late next year. The book, Presto and Zesto in Limboland, was co-written with Sendak's longtime friend Arthur Yorinks, and is apparently inspired by a series of images Sendak created in 1990 to accompany a London Symphony Orchestra performance of Leoš Janáček’s Rikadla, "a 1927 composition that set a series of nonsense Czech nursery rhymes to music."
