Editorial Reviews:
Where the Wild Things Are is one of those truly rare books that can be enjoyed equally by a child and a grown-up. If you disagree, then it's been too long since you've attended a wild rumpus. Max dons his wolf suit in pursuit of some mischief and gets sent to bed without supper. Fortuitously, a forest grows in his room, allowing his wild rampage to continue unimpaired. Sendak's color illustrations (perhaps his finest) are beautiful, and each turn of the page brings the discovery of a new wonder.

The wild things--with their mismatched parts and giant eyes--manage somehow to be scary-looking without ever really being scary; at times they're downright hilarious. Sendak's defiantly run-on sentences--one of his trademarks--lend the perfect touch of stream of consciousness to the tale, which floats between the land of dreams and a child's imagination.

This Sendak classic is more fun than you've ever had in a wolf suit, and it manages to reaffirm the notion that there's no place like home.

Book Description

In the forty years since Max first cried "Let the wild rumpus start," Maurice Sendak's classic picture book has become one of the most highly acclaimed and best-loved children's books of all time. Now, in celebration of this special anniversary, introduce a new generation to Max's imaginative journey to where the wild things are.

4Captivating illustrations, Aug 11, 2023
My 4 year old daughter loves this book. The illustrations are beautiful and the text is well written for her age. It might be a little scary for a younger child

1Looking ok, reading not, Aug 7, 2023
If you just want a picture book its wonderful but I wanted something to read to the kids and this book didn't have much to read or much of a story.

5I echo what everyone else said!, Aug 5, 2023
This book is fantastic and a favorite of my kids. We love it.

One suggestion - if your kids are rough on books like mine are, buy the paperback version for the playroom and a hardcover to keep nice. I did this and I'm so glad I did. I don't cringe as much when they get rough with the paperback as I do with the hard cover. Yes - books are meant to be read, but I like keeping one copy nice (my hardcover) for reading before bedtime in their rooms.

Enjoy the book. This is one purchase you won't regret.

This book was a favorite of our little boys 40 years ago. It is still the perfect baby gift for your friends who have boys. Max was naughty and his mother sent him to bed. This is the story about how little boys use their imaginations to conjur up adventures even in their bed rooms, at night, with the lights off!! Delightful
