[vimeo http://vimeo.com/30575133]

Norman Juster and Jules Feiffer’s classic children’s book is turning 50 this year. As fresh and inventive as ever, a 50th Anniversary edition has been re-released by Knopf Books for Young Readers, and there are countless stories, reviews and celebrations in prestigious publications such as The Paris ReviewThe Atlantic, and the Wall Street Journal. There is even a Kickstarter page to back a documentary with Juster and Feiffer. If only MGM would re-release the 1970 film version directed by Chuck Jones the celebration would be complete.
