Sendak vowed never to write a sequel to his beloved book, but Geoffrey O. Todd and Rich Berner attempted to raise £25,000 for an illustrated poem inspired by the classic book.
Apparently the project’s creators say they were “very careful not to impinge on Mr Sendak’s copyright and have taken the necessary legal advice around this whole project.” I think they need better lawyers — it’s hard to see how the proposed project wouldn’t be a direct infringement of Sendak’s work.
Would it be better if they were raising money to buy the rights and make it all above-board and legal? Like Scarlett?
