Fiftieth Anniversary Edition

Where the Wild Things Are

Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for the Most Distinguished Picture Book of the Year

The original pictures have never before been as faithfully reproduced as they are in this new edition. Maurice Sendak enthusiastically approved this remastered rendition of his art.

In addition to Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's books include Kenny's Window, Very Far Away, The Sign on Rosie's Door, Nutshell Library (consisting of Chicken Soup with Rice, Alligators All Around, One Was Johnny, and Pierre), Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy, and Bumble-Ardy.

He received the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are; the 1970 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration; the 1983 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, given by the American Library Association in recognition of his entire body of work; and a 1996 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution to the arts in America. In 2003, he received the fi rst Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an international prize for children's literature established by the Swedish government.

Synopsis:

Where the Wild Things Are is fifty years old! Let the wild rumpus with Max and all 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 Book of the Year, Where the Wild Things Are became an iconic book that has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations. It continues to be one of the best loved books of all time the world over, by the one and only Maurice Sendak.

I am 29 years old and just read this book for the first time. Unfortunately for me I never read this as a child, but can't wait to read it to my own children. I imagine most children can relate to this book, the overactive imagination, getting into trouble and then going off into a wonderful world that you feel a part of and accepted in.

I picked up this book while at Costco and read it, amazed at how many memories it brought back. Such a simple storyline but one that will have a child's imagination stirring. This story is a classic and one that every child should read. Parents, please consider reading this with your child before taking them to see the recently released movie. Movies made from books are wonderful but they don't come close to the experience that comes from reading.
