Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the forty years since Max first cried "Let the wild rumpus start," Maurice Sendak's classic picture book has become one of the most highly acclaimed and best-loved children's books of all time.

Now, in celebration of this special anniversary, introduce a new generation to Max's imaginative journey to where the wild things are.

Review:

"Each word has been carefully chosen and the simplicity of the language is quite deceptive." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Max, a wild and naughty boy, is sent to bed without his supper by his exhausted mother. In his room, he imagines sailing far away to a land of Wild Things. Instead of eating him, the Wild Things make Max their king. Caldecott Medal winner; ALA Notable Children's Book; New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book; Reading Rainbow Selection; The Horn Book Fanfare Honor List.

Synopsis:

Fiftieth Anniversary Edition

Winner of the Caldecott Medal

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.

A Jungian hero's journey wherein the protagonist voyages into the dark center of his own deepest fears in order to return with the power of self-knowledge.

I have given this book to more children than I can count. It has never been out of print since it was published in the 60's. It is the masterwork of Maurice Sendak, the best children's book illustrator of all time.
