Where the Wild Things Are

Although Maurice Sendak’s 1963 children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” consists of only ten sentences, it has been a phenomenal international hit, selling over 19 million copies as of last year. Now that it’s been adapted into a hit movie by director Spike Jonze, media attention is once again shining on Mr. Sendak, his artwork and this wonderful children’s story.
