Where the Wild Things Are
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.

Meet The Author
For more than forty years, the books Maurice Sendak has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's literature is and should be. The New York Times has recognized that Sendak's work "has brought a new dimension to the American children's book and has helped to change how people visualize childhood." Parenting recently described Sendak as "indisputably, the most revolutionary force in children's books."

Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are, in 1970 Sendak became the first American illustrator to receive the international Hans Christian Andersen Award, given in recognition of his entire body of work. In 1983, he received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award from the American Library Association, also given for his entire body of work.

Beginning in 1952, with A Hole Is to Dig by Ruth Krauss, Sendak's illustrations have enhanced many texts by other writers, including the Little Bear books by Else Holmelund Minarik, children's books by Isaac Bashevis Singer and Randall Jarrell, and The Juniper Tree and Other Tales from Grimm. Dear Mili, Sendak's interpretation of a newly discovered tale by Wilhelm Grimm, was published to extraordinary acclaim in 1988.

In addition to Where the Wild Things Are (1963), Sendak has both written and illustrated

The Nutshell Library (1962), Higglety Pigglety Pop! (1967), In the Night Kitchen (1970), Outside Over There (1981), and, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy (1993). He also illustrated Swine Lake (1999), authored by James Marshall, Brundibar (2003), by Tony Kushner, Bears (2005), by Ruth Krauss and, Mommy? (2006), his first pop-up book, with paper engineering by Matthew Reinhart and story by Arthur Yorinks.

Since 1980, Sendak has designed the sets and costumes for highly regarded productions of Mozart's The Magic Flute and Idomeneo, Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen, Prokofiev's

The Love for Three Oranges, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, and Hans Krása's Brundibár.

In 1997, Sendak received the National Medal of Arts from President Clinton. In 2003 he received the first Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an international prize for children's literature established by the Swedish government. Maurice Sendak was born in Brooklyn in 1928. He now lives in Connecticut.
