With illustrations by Maurice Sendak, I SAW ESAU is a collection of rhymes, poems, sayings, and other verbal nonsense collected by Iona and Peter Opie over several years listening to the things children said while playing. Some of these sayings have been around for many generations, such as "Moses Supposes"; "Rain, rain, go away"; and "Sticks and Stones. Others are more recent or have a more local flair.

Illustrated wonderfully by. Book and jacket are in excellent condition, no real shelf wear to speak of. A small scratch and black mark on front of dust jacket, see photos.

com's Maurice Sendak Author Page. For more than forty years, the books Maurice Sendak has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's literature is and should be. The New York Times has recognized that Sendak's work "has brought a new dimension to the American children's book and has helped to change how people visualize childhood. Parenting recently described Sendak as "indisputably, the most revolutionary force in children's books.

Maurice Sendak is very well known. Sendak loved to draw pictures of the neighborhood children

Maurice Sendak is very well known. Maurice Sendak is very well known for his writing and illustration of children’s books. Richard Egielski is also very talented illustrator of children’s books. Both of these men have won many awards and critical acclaim for their work. Sendak loved to draw pictures of the neighborhood children. He used to watch them playing from his bedroom window and many of the characters in his books have been based on them. Maurice Sendak’s most famous book is the 1964 Caldecott winner, Where the Wild Things Are.

Nevertheless, during the Great Decluttering I came across this and noted that Maurice Sendak illustrated this. I like Sendak's work (not his politics). This a beautiful book.

This is an adorable, often silly, sometimes morbid book of children's poetry collected from the past. It is not the watered-down kittens-and-rainbows material that is often considered appropriate for children these days, and is all the richer for that. (A full-page poem about the cat that erped on the rug and then ate it again? Lyrical threats of physical violence against anyone who damages a book?) Highly recommended for teachers working on poetry units, for unconventional parents, and those interested in changing standards of literature.
Usic
Nicely published collection of nursery rhymes that go WAY beyond Mother Goose. Loved Sendak's illustrations, which elevate this book from purely a selection of archaic rhymes and riddles. If you liked Where the Sidewalk Ends I think you should give this book a go.

With illustrations by Maurice Sendak, I SAW ESAU is a collection of rhymes, poems, sayings, and other verbal nonsense collected by Iona and Peter Opie over several years listening to the things children said while playing. Some of these sayings have been around for many generations, such as "Moses Supposes"; "Rain, rain, go away"; and "Sticks and Stones." Others are more recent or have a more local flair. Meanwhile, they are all full of witty, whimsical, and wonderful wordplay fun. Sadly, in 21st century America, you probably won't hear many of these sayings ever spoken by children as they are sucked into their miniature screens of technology. Yelling at the rain to go away, screaming for ice cream, or pondering upon the work of a woodchuck are all things that children don't seem to do anymore. Perhaps if they had someone to read to them from I SAW ESAU, they would forget those little screens and actually test their mental muscle. The version of I SAW ESAU published by Candlewick Press includes an introduction by Iona Ophie and at the end of the book there are a series of notes about many of the rhymes. Overall, I SAW ESAU is a fun little book that's highly recommended for children of any age.

This is one of those books that I picked up, years before my son was expected, just because the cover amused me. It helped greatly that Maurice Sendak was the illustrator, but it is an amusing book.

I don't want to give too much away, but in the introduction Iona Opie explains how this book came into being. She says the rhymes contained "were clearly not the rhymes that a grandmother might sing to a grandchild on her knee". However, for the past two Aprils, I have been choosing some rhymes out of this book to read to my toddler son for National Poetry Month. I've probably warped him for life, but maybe in a good way.

Peter and Iona Opie (eds.), I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild's Pocket Book (Revised Edition) (Candlewick Press, 1992)

It will come as no surprise to anyone who's read I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild's Pocket Book that it has been challenged as "obscene" in Murfreesboro, TN (viz. The Murfreesboro Daily News Journal, Feb. 7, 2007). I Saw Esau is exactly the kind of book that begs a challenge. First it's illustrated by the wonderful Maurice Sendak, who seems to trail controversy wherever he goes. Second, the Opies actually collected the rhymes, sayings, and other nonesuch here from actual children, and of course, children must be protected from anything else said by their real-world contemporaries. After all, morons who challenge kids' books in schools either never were kids, have forgotten what being a kid was like, or are such humorless sticks-in-the-mud that they don't feel their own children deserve to have as fun a childhood as they did. (Any other interpretations of such boorish behavior-- and they are legion-- would verge on libel, and thus will not be speculated upon here.)

If, on the other hand, you're a reasonable, thinking human being who has a shred of a sense of humor and are old enough to remember where you were when JFK was shot, and perhaps if you're a bit younger and hung around with people older than you were as a kid, you're going to recognize a lot of what's in here, probably with great fondness. You chanted this stuff, or variations on it, as a kid in the schoolyard. Maurice Sendak's illustrations complement the text wonderfully, often in frighteningly literal manner, and are never less than a pleasure. (But, oh, horrors, one must protect one's children from naked gluteus maximi that appear on a few pages! And oh, how terrible, one drawing features full frontal nudity! Well, tell me-- do YOU take a bath with your clothes on?) If you're younger than that, you'll probably be able to see the germs of your own schoolyard babblings in here, and be equally charmed. If you read it and are offended by it, then you may well be one of that subset of people who simply needs to be offended until you get it. In any case, I can't recommend this book highly enough, both for yourself and to share with your kids. ****

I found this book years ago in the bargain section at a Borders store. I have loved it since. It is one of my favorites in my collection of children works.

I saw Esau is a brilliant collection of beloved and perhaps some long forgotten children chats and teaser remarks. It's quite a treasure and well worth reading.

The artwork is charming in it's old fashioned style and as it combines in some instances a number of pieces to gether to tell one tale in it's imagery.
