I was sad to read that Maurice Sendak has died, aged 83. I am sure that you know him best as the author of ‘Where the wild things are’. My kids have this book and I remember reading it in primary school myself.
According to this ABC news item he released a new book in September 2011 called Bumble-Ardy which, after a quick look at Amazon, appears to contain its own wild birthday rumpus.
I will be dragging wild things out for the kids tonight. When I told them this morning that the Where the wild things are man had died they said ‘awwww…’ RIP Maurice Sendak.
