Farewell, Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are, 25th AnniversaryWhere the Wild Things Are, 25th Anniversary by Maurice Sendak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What sad news that Maurice Sendak has gone to that library described by Jorge Luis Borges. I "discovered" this book (it was brought to my attention) when I transferred from the Business/Science/Technology Dept. of the Worcester, Mass., Public Library to the Children's Room in the 80's. It is one of my top three for reading at Story Hour. I so love it that all of my profile pictures are of me holding this book in an ALA "Read" poster. Farewell, friend to children of all ages. Rest in peace.
