Where the Wild Things Are No Longer

Much has been written about Maurice Sendak. He’s been called a curmudgeon and cranky. But those who were lucky enough to know the real Maurice Sendak saw him as a warm, clever, and brutally honest individual with a unique vision.

I met Maurice Sendak through his books and illustrations. With sparse text and sometimes controversial illustrations, Sendak captured my imagination and pulled me into his stories. His skillful use of words and attention to artistic details begged the books be read and examined again and again. Sendak’s writing was unconventional and wildly fun.

Maurice Sendak was a talent beyond compare. He understood what children wanted and how to give it to them. He touched the hearts and souls of his readers. I will miss his creative genius.

Some of my favorites!
