Where The Wild Things Are

Winner of the Caldecott Medal 1964

When Max puts on his wolf suit and makes mischief, his mother calls him 'Wild Thing' and sends him to bed without any supper. Alone in his room, Max enters a magical world and sets sail across the sea to the place where the wild things are. The wild things roar their terrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth and roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws . . .

But Max tames the wild things and is made their king.

Will he ever want to go home?
"Sendak is the daddy of them all when it comes to picture books - the words, the rhythm and the design are all wonderful." S Magazine, Sunday Express
Maurice Sendak was born in Brooklyn, New York. He began by illustrating other authors' books for children, but the first book that he both wrote and illustrated was Kenny's Window, published in 1956. Since then he has illustrated over 80 books, and has won many awards, including the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are. In 1970 he was the first American to win the Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator's Medal. In 1978 the University of Boston made him Doctor of Humane Letters and in 1983 he won the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal for a 'substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children over a period of years'.
"Gripping, ingenious and uplifting ... a shrewd, fierce, healing book" -- Boyd Tonkin Independent 20050808 "A timeless masterpiece. The illustrations, the fabulous monsters, the beautiful cross-hatching, and the surreal, dreamlike narrative beckons the reader to join the adventure. The themes are perfect for inspiring discussion on confronting life's scary things, mastering your fears and being brave, letting off steam, saying goodbye, and the comfort of returning home safe and sound" Child Education 20090601 "An almost-perfect picture book stuffed with mischief, magic and meaning ... Has a haunting depth that makes bedtime reading thrilling, a little scary, but also empowering" Junior "This is my never-fail picture book. The text is very short, but utterly perfect, the illustrations are tremendous" -- Jacqueline Wilson 20060430 "The key to Sendak's success, and to the continuing hipness of his book, is that it's hero is not a good child ... the book is, in fact, extraordinarily childcentric, a book written for and about terrible infants, the kind of terrible infants that most children really are and that all adults remain for much of the time" -- David Baddiel The Times 20060114
