Where the wild things are by Maurice Sendak

June 27, 2011

Where the wild things are was first published in 1963 and millions of copies have since been sold. It remains one of my (now adult)  sons’ favourite stories and pretty soon he’ll be reading it to his daughter too.

Poor Max, sent to his room for being a “Wild Thing”. Well, maybe don’t feel to sorry for him, because Max is able to travel in his boat all the way across the sea , through the forest and into the land of the Wild Things. There he become the King of all Wild Things, leading the wild rumpus until… is that dinner he smells? Well it’s a long trip, but Max travels all the way home, just in time for tea.

Close your eyes and travel with your imagination… I bet you can see Max and the Wild Things too.
