Fallen Giant
Fallen Giant
I was so sad to hear that Maurice Sendak has passed away and can hardly believe it. One of my biggest influences artistically and nothing short of a creative genius. Also a wonderful human being who made this world a better place.

He infused his work with pure magic and transported my imagination to faraway places. I can't even imagine my childhood without "Where The Wild Things Are".

RIP Maurice Sendak, you will be greatly missed.

AW! This was hands down my FAVORITE book and it is so sad to hear he has passed. My prayers are with his family and friends.

I'm totally with you on this, Terry! Where the Wild Things Are--a Classic!!! I did not grow up with his books (in Germany), but fell in love with his pictures, and admired his style and imagination from the moment I first saw his books.

"where the wild things are" and "in the night kitchen" are childhood favorites that still inspire, that's an amazing feat!
