I picked up a book in the library the other day, when I went there with Anna and PJ. The book, In the Night Kitchen, is written and illustrated by Maurice Sendack, who also penned "Where the Wild Things Are."
It is great! We have enjoyed it immensely, and it hits the perfect tone of slightly creepy or different, but funny and fantastic at the same time. Highly reccomended. Its right up there with "Oh the Places You Will Go."
