Staff Reviews

"Let the wild rumpus start! No more really needs to be said of what is, arguably, the most beloved picture book of all time."

— Meghan G.

"As a kid it appealed to my anarchist side — the idea that you could lose control and get in touch with your animal nature."

— Shappy


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.
