NEW YORK (AP) - There will be some new fall reading for the kids: a new Maurice Sendak book.

HarperCollins Children’s Books announced Friday that it was releasing “Bumble-Ardy” in September. Sendak wrote and illustrated the story of a partying pig and his friends.

HarperCollins said the new book will have a first printing of 500,000 copies.

Sendak’s books have sold millions of copies and include “Where the Wild Things Are” and “In the Night Kitchen.”
