I Just heard Maurice Sendak passed away this morning at 83 years old. One of the most beloved childrens authors of all time, his books were definitely a big part of my childhood.
But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go - we’ll eat you up - we love you so!”
And Max said, “No!”
wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible
teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but
Max stepped into his private boat and waved goodbye.”
Goodbye, Mr. Wild Thing
