Description

Where the Wild Things Are is fifty years old! Let the wild rumpus with Max and all of the wild things continue as this classic comes to life as never before with new reproductions of Maurice Sendak’s artwork. Astonishing state of the art technology faithfully captures the color and detail of the original illustrations. Sendak himself enthusiastically endorsed this impressive new interpretation of his art before his death in May 2012. Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for the Most Distinguished Picture of the Year, Where the Wild Things Are became an iconic that has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations. It continues to be one of the most best loved s of all time the world over, by the one and only Maurice Sendak.

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Where the Wild Things Are is a kind of in point of fact rare s that may 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 wild things–with their mismatched parts and giant eyes–manage someway to be scary-looking without ever truly being scary; at times they are downright hilarious. Sendak’s defiantly run-on sentences–one of his trademarks–lend the perfect touch of stream of consciousness to the tale, which floats between the land of dreams and a child’s imagination.

This Sendak classic is more fun than you’ve ever had in a wolf suit, and it manages to reaffirm the notion that there is not any place like home.
