An era has passed. Maurice Sendak has passed away at the age of 83 (1928-2012).
‘Where the Wild Things Are‘ was a staple of my childhood. It inspired made up games filled with good and scary monsters. Running around hooting and hollering on the vast acreage I called home.
His direct approach to storytelling helped shape generations of storytellers.
Mr. Sendak, thank you for all your wonderful creations. Where ever you are, I hope you are running with the Wild Things.
