Where the Wild Things Are Collector's Edition

Where the Wild Things Are Collector's Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Where the Wild Things Are with a luxurious edition that pays homage to both the original publication and the glory of Sendak fifty years later!

For five decades, children have roared their terrible roars with Max and the wild things. This new Collector's Edition will transport readers back to 1963, before Maurice Sendak was a household name and before Where the Wild Things Are was a recognized essential part of every child's library. Each book features foil stamping on the binding cover and a heavier board stock and comes in a shrink-wrapped package. Best of all, the artwork is more brilliant and more faithful to Sendak's originals than ever before, made possible by new technology. Maurice Sendak himself enthusiastically endorsed this new interpretation of his art before his death in May 2012.

Where the Wild Things Are is an iconic book that has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations. Now 1,000 people can commemorate the book's golden anniversary with this limited printing of numbered copies!
