    Where the Wild Things Are is fifty years old! Let the wild rumpus with Max and all the wild things continue as this classic comes to life as never before with new reproductions of Maurice Sendak's artwork. Astonishing state-of-the-art technology faithfully captures the color and detail of the original illustrations. Sendak himself enthusiastically endorsed this impressive new interpretation of his art before his death in May 2012. Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for the Most Distinguished Picture Book of the Year, Where the Wild Things Are became an iconic book that has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations. It continues to be one of the best loved books of all time the world over, by the one and only Maurice Sendak.

      I remember reading this book when I was a child, and thought it would be a good book to read to my son. Good classic book and the shipping was fast.

    • daughter thanks you

      My daughter is in college getting her Masters in Education. This book is an addition to her collection for her students to read. Also she will be using it for teaching purposes in her class. Since this is an older book, it is hard to find it in bookstores. The price was good and the amount of time it took to receive the book was fast. I can count of finding articles from your service the majority of the time and nicely priced.

    • Great pictures. Good story

      A classic for any little boy 4 y.o. or older. It takes the "fear" out of monsters. I only wish I had purchased a board book, the soft cover version is not as sturdy as a hardcover or board book.
