Taking the folkloric motif of three as its departure point, this paper asserts that three picture books created by the world-renowned author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak, are really of a piece, a trilogy, to be exact. Focusing on the hero's journey, the paper explores the psychological development of the three separate, yet linked, child protagonists presented.
