Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Where the Wild Things Are with a luxurious edition that pays homage to both the original publication and the glory of Sendak fifty years later!
For five decades, children have roared their terrible roars with Max and the wild things. This new Collector's Edition will transport readers back to 1963, before Maurice Sendak was a household name and before Where the Wild Things Are was a recognized essential part of every child's library. Each book features foil stamping on the binding cover and a heavier board stock and comes in a shrink-wrapped package. Best of all, the artwork is more brilliant and more faithful to Sendak's originals than ever before, made possible by new technology. Maurice Sendak himself enthusiastically endorsed this new interpretation of his art before his death in May 2012.
Where the Wild Things Are is an iconic book that has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations. Now 1,000 people can commemorate the book's golden anniversary with this limited printing of numbered copies!
Supports the Common Core State Standards
Review: 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.
