Where the Wild Things Are, written by Maurice Sendak, is the unforgettable story of Max, a naughty little boy who misbehaves and ends up in his bedroom with no dinner. What ensues is an imaginatice and superbly written adventure as Max's imagination grows a forest in his room and takes him on a journey to where the wild things are.
We have owned this book for years, and when my 5 yr old was younger, there weren't many books that could hold her attention very well. This book was a different story (pun intended.) She would sit there enthralled as we read the words to her and showed her the pictures. The illustrations are by far the best part of this book, and are Maurice Sendak is known for. The imagery is unique and imaginative, and prompted many discussions between my daughter and I.
Where the Wild Things Are is a beautiiful and entertaining book for younger and older children, as my 5 year old now reads it by herself. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to stimulate the imaginations of young ones!
