I was saddened to hear of the death of Maurice Sendak yesterday. I like a great many others around the world I grew up reading Where the Wild ThingsAre his work was a wondrous source of inspiration. I’m fairly confident that it was one of the very first books I ever read, I remember how it used to poke out of the line of books on the classroom’s books shelf and draw you in by those magnificent illustrations. 25 years later I was able to enjoy the book again by sharing it with my daughter who found it equally enthralling!
Thank you Mr. Sendak.
