HarperCollins's reissue of Maurice Sendak's oeuvre continues with four more titles. Published in 1956, Kenny's Window follows the adventures of a boy living out his fantasies from the confines of his bedroom. His window provides a magic portal as he strives to answer seven questions posed to him in a dream. The Sign on Rosie's Door (1960) invites readers into the girl's imaginative world, where three knocks reveal her secret: ""I'm not Rosie any more,"" she says. ""I'm Alinda, the lovely lady singer."" A quartet of neighborhood pals quickly gets in on the act. ( Mar.)
