Where the wild things are

RIP Maurice Sendak June 10, 1928 – May 8, 2012

Sendak gained international acclaim after writing and illustrating Where the Wild Things Are.The book’s depictions of fanged monsters concerned some parents when it was first published, as his characters were somewhat grotesque in appearance.
