Re: Maurice Sendak, gone to Where the Wild Things Are
my children's well-worn copy of "where the wild things are" is right here on the bookshelf next to me. also, after "pat the bunny" and "goodnight moon", of course, it was the next picture book i got each of my grandbabies...occasional wild things who have been known to make mischief of one kind or another.
the last couple of pages bring some comfort to max and the reader: "back...into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him..and it was still hot."
rest in peace, mr. sendak. you definitely won't be forgotten.
