The book was written by Maurice Sendak.  He was born on June 10, 1928.

The hero of the story is a boy named Mickey.  As he drifts off into the dreamworld of the Night Kitchen, he falls out of his pajamas and runs around naked.  After a page or two, he dives into a bowl of cake batter, which sticks to him and creates a suit.

Sendak also wrote the classic children's story Where the Wild Things Are.
