From Wikipedia
Where the Wild Things Are is a 1963 children's picture book by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak, originally published by Harper & Row. The book has been adapted into other media several times, including an animated short, an opera, and, in 2009, a live-action feature film adaptation and video game. According to HarperCollins, the book has sold over 19 million copies worldwide as of 2008.

My son brought this home from preschool a couple of years ago, a gift from his teacher. he would curl up in their lap and have them read the story of Max and his forest over and over again. Let the Wild Rumpus start!
I have since fallen in love with all of the new items they released with the movie, the plush dolls and the new editions. This book written, 25 years ago, is a must have for any mother of toddlers. It's kid tested and mother approved at our house! Five stars...

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
