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! Maurice Sendak's Caldecott Medal-winning picture book has become one of the most highly acclaimed and best-loved children's books of all time. A must for every child's bookshelf.

Introduce a new generation to Max's imaginative journey with this special anniversary edition. Let the wild rumpus continue as this classic comes to life like 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 2012. This iconic story has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations.

Praise For…

“The clearer reproductions of the original art are vibrant and luminous.”

“Each word has been carefully chosen and the simplicity of the language is quite deceptive.”

“A timeless classic that continues to win over the hearts of children. The simple, rhythmic text and expressive illustrations are just as appealing today as they were when I was a child.” 10 Must-Have Books for 2-Year-Olds
