The village of Troeken is happy with how much it rains--and it rains all the time. But when the sun comes out, the villagers must find a way to bring back the rain.
The New York Herald Tribune Book Review praised The Happy Rain, saying, "The brothers Sendak have had a splendid topsy-turvy time with the village of Troeken . . . A tender, amusing story with pictures perfectly suited to the text."
First published in 1956 and now back in print, The Happy Rain is a special collaboration between brothers.
