Where The Wild Things Are


Key Features


This Caldecott Medal winner is a whimsical fantasy about a young boy whose imagination transports him far away from problems at home to a land where almost anything can happen.

Max is looking for a little fun, so he dresses up in a comical wolf suit. Unfortunately, his mother is tired of his antics, and sends him to bed without any supper. But unexpectedly a forest grows in his bedroom and Max is taken away to a land of Wild Things. Fortunately, the Wild Things do not eat Max; instead they make him their king. And lucky Max is allowed to continue his romp. Will Max return to his mother and finally eat his dinner?

Celebrated author Sendak writes in free-flowing, dream-like text, which seems to mirror the organic flow of the child's mind. Children of all ages will be enraptured by this wonderful fantasy story.
