Product description

The Wild Things by Dave Eggers is the novelisation of Maurice Sendak's classic. Max likes to make noise, get dirty, ride his bike without a helmet and howl like a wolf. In any other age he would have just been considered a boy. These days he is considered wilful and deranged. After a row with his mother, Max runs away. He jumps into a boat and sails across the ocean to a strange island where giant and destructive beasts reign - the Wild Things. After almost being eaten, Max gains their trust, and he is made their king. But what will he do with the responsibility? "A life-affirming delight." (GQ). "Compelling, fantastical, engrossing." (Shortlist). "Let the wild rumpus start!" (Grazia).
