Where The Wild Things Are
Where the Wild Things Are is one of those truly rare books that can be enjoyed equally by a child and a grown-up.
If you disagree, then it's been too long since you've attended a wild rumpus. Max dons his wolf suit in pursuit of some mischief and gets sent to bed without supper. Fortuitously, a forest grows in his room, allowing his wild rampage to continue unimpaired. Sendak's color illustrations (perhaps his finest) are beautiful, and each turn of the page brings the discovery of a new wonder.
The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind, and another, his mother called him WILD THING!
This hardcover edition and Caldecott Medal winning story is written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
