Maurice Sendak is known for his Wild Things. The Where the Wild Things Are author and illustrator has had an award-winning career conjuring up characters that looked more frightful than they really were. Now, almost 50 years since the children's favorite was published, and almost 30 years since he last wrote and illustrated a book, the legendary author is set to release a new book this Fall – Bumble-Ardy, a story about a pig who experiences his first-ever birthday party at 9-years-old.
The news got me thinking about my favorite Sendak books from my own childhood. Check them out and tell me your favorite in the comments below.
