…Where the Wild Things Are – A Tribute to Maurice Sendak
“The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him and it was still hot.” Where the Wild Things Are
As many of you already know, we are huge fans of Maurice Sendak. For more than forty years, the books Maurice Sendak has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's literature is and should be. The New York Times has recognized that Sendak's work “has brought a new dimension to the American children's book and has helped to change how people visualize childhood.” Parenting recently described Sendak as “indisputably, the most revolutionary force in children's books.”
To honor Mr. Sendak's memory we think the most appropriate tribute is making sure you have at least one Sendak book in your personal library. Here are a few of our favorites! Just scroll over the book cover for the title and click on the picture for a summary of each book.
