Book of the Week – Where the Wild Things Are (Maurice Sendak)

Where the Wild Things Are
Story and Pictures by Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of Max, who one evening plays around his home making “mischief” in a wolf costume. As punishment, his mother sends him to bed without supper. In his room, a mysterious, wild forest and sea grows out of his imagination, and Max sails to the land of the Wild Things. The Wild Things are fearsome-looking monsters, but Max conquers them by “staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once”, and he is made “the king of all wild things”, dancing with the monsters in a “wild rumpus”. However, he soon finds himself lonely and homesick and returns home to his bedroom where he finds his supper waiting for him still hot.
