    Pierre has an attitude and he just doesn’t care Nothing no one can make him care not even a lion Pierre does learn a lesson and adjusts his attitude but it’s not the easiest way to do so This is a book 14 the size of a normal book pocket size It’s very cute with Maurice’s artwork and style It’s short and sweet for a beginning reader The kids loved this They laughed and giggled when Pierre was eaten They wanted it read again The nephew gave this 5 stars and the niece gave it 3 stars

    “Pierre A Cautionary Tale” is apart of the Nutshell Kids Library collection by Maurice Sendak and is one of the most exciting one out of all the stories of the collection “Pierre A Cautionary Tale” is about a young boy named Pierre who never cared about hurting other people’s feelings until a lion comes for a visit This book will definitely be a cult favorite among children who are fans of Maurice Sendak’s works Maurice Sendak has done a superb job at both illustrating and writing this book Maurice Sendak’s writing is similar to Dr Seuss’ famous rhyming prose as Maurice Sendak writes the story in a rhyming prose making the story extremely creative to read Maurice Sendak also creatively and effectively relates the conseuences of not caring about the world and how not caring could become dangerous if one is not careful Maurice Sendak’s illustrations may seem a bit simplistic but the characters are lively and detailed enough to entice many children to read this book especially of the images of Pierre with his blue outfit and his scowling facial expressions Parents should know that the scene where Pierre is eaten by a lion might scare smaller children even though this scene is not that graphic since the next images just shows the lion picking his teeth and his belly getting large Parents should reassure their children that if they do not care about the world it does not mean that a lion will eat them but that there are other conseuences that children might face if they do not learn to care for other people like being shunned by other people “Pierre A Cautionary Tale” is a terrific book about the conseuences of not caring about other people’s feelings and it will surely interest children for many years I would recommend this book to children ages five and up due to the scene where the lion eats up Pierre Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    've included a link to Carole King's musical version of this classic children's storyA fabulous combination of talent Sendak's lyrical words and King's beautiful voice The copy I read was printed in 2013 but includes the original 1962 cover The artwork in this story is also really well done; classic Sendak styleWhat I didn't know This book is part of The Nutshell LibraryOne was JohnnyChicken Soup With RiceAlligators All AroundPierreTo sum it up this is a story with a moral air about Pierre who learned to careI loved it

    Odd but entertaining story about a little boy who doesn't care I've never been much of a fan of Maurice Sendak's work but I thought this was a clever and humorous tale The illustrations are simple and the chapters are very short I am not sure if this book is appropriate for younger children but older children will likely be able to appreciate the wry wit interesting uote The moral of Pierre is CARE p 48

    I just finished reading this 4 times in a row with my six year old He read most of it to me then asked me to read it to give the voices the proper toneHe always doubts me when I say Oh this is a good one I LOVED this one when I was your age but this time he listened to me and he loved itLOVEDHis favourite parts involve the lion of course he loves the satisfied smirk on his face when Pierre is eaten and watching Pierre's father smacking the lion with the chairI'm glad I found a copy of this for us I think it'll enter the nightly story rotation nowOh and Pierre's mom's wardrobe is awesome I would totally rock that coat and hat she wears when she heads into town

    My kindergarten class did a skit to the song about how Pierre doesn't care and for years I couldn't figure out where the song was from and why it haunted me I would even sing the one part I knew to people once in a while and no one could tell me about it I finally figured it out at the Maurice Sendak exhibit at the Jewish Museum about three years ago It was like a revelation

  9. Susan Susan says:

    I never really liked this one as a child Pierre getting eaten because he 'doesn't care' It always just seemed to me that Pierre was just trying to do his own thing and avoid arbitrary directives OK not pouring syrup in your hair is a good idea but not standing on your head and to be killed for either The 'moral' seems like 'conform unuestioningly to authority or you will risk being killed for it'

    When I was little my mother always pulled out this book and read it to us whenever we told her that we didn't care Now whenever anyone says that they don't care I automatically think of this silly book I really like the book and the moral is a good one
