The inspiration for both a film and an opera, this winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal is one of the quintessential children’s books that readers have cherished for decades. Not only is Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are truly imaginative, it also features unique artwork that brings the story to life. This latest edition enhances Sendak’s original pictures by using today’s technology to unearth the color and detail of the book’s first pictures.
Like many stories, Max’s marvelous journey begins simply enough. Young Max is playing about his house in his wolf costume, but his family isn’t having Max’s wild antics. As punishment for his behavior, Max is sent to his room without dinner. Yet when he returns to his room, he discovers it’s been transformed into a jungle. From there, Max hops on a boat to explore his new surroundings, only to land on an island. But Max isn’t alone in this new world. He has company in the form of large beasts called “Wild Things.” Luckily, Max has enough gumption and personality (along with his wolf costume) to intimidate the much larger creatures. He does such a great job asserting himself that he becomes king of the Wild Things. Now the wild rumpus can begin.
