Dear Mili is a delightful long-lost story from Wilhem Grimm and Illustrated by Maurice Sendak. The story itself is an evocative and somber exploration of the individual human and especially the child's reaction to war and tragedy. While heart-achingly sad at times the greater truth underlying the story pushes the reader along through a landscape made ethereal by Sendak's wonderful illustrations, illustrations that at times like a frightening and mysterious cabinet of curiosities filled with strange images barely hidden, watching.

"Dear Mili" is among Mr. Sendak's finest creations. If one hesitates to call him the foremost illustrator in contemporary America, or the most accomplished draftsman, it is only because those terms set too narrow a limit on the nature of his achievement

"Dear Mili" is among Mr. If one hesitates to call him the foremost illustrator in contemporary America, or the most accomplished draftsman, it is only because those terms set too narrow a limit on the nature of his achievement. He is an artist, nothing less; an artist with a powerful vision. -John Gross, "The New York Times". In the Sendak world, stories unfold like dreams, where images connect emotionally and serendipitously, not by the logic imposed by grown-ups when they are awake.

Young Mili escapes a horrible war by living for thirty years in the forest with a kindly and mysterious old man

This is my favorite Sendak. It has some of his most beautiful illustrations.

The story is about a little girl whose mother sends her into the forest to escape the war. Helped by an angel in the guise of another little girl, she meets an old man (St. Joseph) in the forest and stays with him until it's time for her to return home.

Leaving and losing loved ones is one of the hardest parts of life. This isn't a lighthearted story; I wouldn't recommend it for bedtime, ye gods! This book talks about separation from that which we love the most, a feeling every child has felt deeply at some point in his/her young life. This book is good for adults, too, especially those who are grieving because the book grieves with you. There is a grand reunion at the end and whether this is how it goes in real life is something each person has to discover. All I can say that in life, it seems like the really important stuff always comes back to us, even if we think we've lost it forever.

Many years ago, my daughter checked this out from her school library. We read it together and I loved it. But...after she returned it I couldn't remember what it was called or who the author was so I kind of forgot about it. When she graduated, one of the things the school gave her was a printout of all the books she'd checked out while attending the school (which I thought was a really cool thing to do). That jogged my memory and I immediately jumped on here and ordered a copy. It's a very sweet book that actually contains some pretty harsh elements. I actually appreciate this kind of realism in a book even if it's for children.

I loved the eerily beautiful illustrations, but this book overall was too dark for me. It's heavily saturated with Holocaust imagery (there are vines and branches that look like bones and bodies) It is a haunting interpretation of good and evil... joy and sorrow. It's emotionally compelling and incorporates a variation on loss and separation and is bound to raise questions for young children. However, in many ways this book probably speaks to adults more than to children. With that being said, it is too stark of a tale for even myself.

Dear Mili is a delightful long-lost story from Wilhem Grimm and Illustrated by Maurice Sendak. The story itself is an evocative and somber exploration of the individual human and especially the child's reaction to war and tragedy. While heart-achingly sad at times the greater truth underlying the story pushes the reader along through a landscape made ethereal by Sendak's wonderful illustrations, illustrations that at times like a frightening and mysterious cabinet of curiosities filled with strange images barely hidden, watching. Sendak's illustrations blend in seamlessly with the narrative each giving greater depth to the other to such a degree that it feels almost collaborative, despite the 70 years separating Grimm's Death and Sendak's birth.

At heart Dear Mili is a journey story in the classic tradition but a journey into what unusual land? The reader is not quite certain if Little Mili's path takes her through a real world landscape that has been intruded on by other worldly figures or if she has somehow intruded into the other world herself or indeed if her path follows the old death roads of folklore and myth. Not until the last few pages are we given an answer and when it comes it hits like a powerful and sublime grace note .

Dear Mili can not be said to be a fairy tale in the Grimm tradition. It is too philosophical and too intimately crafted for a particular person. Mili was a very real little girl and this story was written as a letter for her in 1816. Despite this the tale has a strength born of it's universal meaning. Mili, though a real person could be any person in similar circumstances with similar feelings and apprehensions. And for children who have tasted the bitter fruit of conflict such a story could not help but too have a more significant meaning. Adults should not feel excluded either. The themes are not merely difficult concepts conveyed to a child, they are difficult concepts conveyed with the forthright honesty and sincerity of a personal letter.

Dear Mili is the kind of story that draws us in too a different world compelling us to follow the the hero on her journey. We feel impotent to console her yet empowered by the shared experience of walking in her shadow.

Like a lot of Maurice Sendak's books - you love it as a kid, and you love it as an adult for very different reasons.

I guess I need Dear Mili afterall to remind me of other things than life's mandane, and to help me see our seemingly unsatisfying life in a different light.

Maurice Sendak's drawings enhanced the classical beauty of the Grimm's fairytale. You can almost see the elegant images listlessly brings the words to life as the best storytellers do.

It is a children's book for adults. I loved Sendak's illustrations of this Grimm tale, of war, aging, death and lost in the woods, but with guiding angels. It is beautiful but shivery scary, great for sharing with my now adult daughter, but not young grandchildren. I love it!

I recently purchased this book for my mom for her birthday. This is one of my favorite childhood hood books. The pictures are hauntingly beautiful. Maurice Sendak always knew how to portray the innocence of children in a dark world so beautifully.
I got this because I Googled "Mili" to see if there were any products associated with my daughter's name. This is a Grimm story that is very old. Not for everyone, but we love it! This will be an heirloom.
