Dave! Where the Wild Things Are.

Who read that wonderful book and didn't want to be Max, King of All Wild Things? I'm guessing nobody.

Which is why I was very saddened to learn that creator Maurice Sendak had died today...

Lil' Dave is a Wild Thing
“Oh, please don't go—we'll eat you up—we love you so!”

Remarkably, Mr. Sendak was more than just an enourmously talented author and illustrator... the guy was funny as hell. And, lucky for us, his last interview was with Stephen Colbert. If you haven't seen it, this is something well worth your time...

And part two...

Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak. Your works will be inspiring kids of all ages for generations to come.

    Soooo sad! That man seriously made me love books. I was obsessed with, “Where the Wild Things Are” and the drawings as a kid.
    RIP, Mr. Sendak. And thank you.
