Happy Birthday Wild Thing!

Today is the birthday of children's author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak. He has written and illustrated many books over fifty years, but he is probably best known for his book, WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, which brought him international acclaim.
It is the story of a young boy named Max, who is sent to his room only to find his imagination has created a new world there, populated by wild geographies and monsters of all kinds. Before long it was a favorite among children everywhere. It has been translated into fifteen languages and has sold more than two million copies!
