Where the Wild Things Are is fifty years old! Let the wild rumpus with Max and all the wild things continue as this classic comes to life as never before with new reproductions of Maurice Sendak's artwork.

Francine In defense of this book it was written in 1963 so things were a bit different back then. If anything, this book has become somewhat of a collectors item and one that's been around for a couple generations. I remember borrowing this book 30 years ago from my kindergarten library so I would want my kids to have and read their copy sitting on their bookshelf.show more

Am I the only person in the world who doesn't love this book? I find it difficult to read (so little text) and not terribly good at provoking my kids imaginations. The pictures are interesting... first time around... but little to talk about after a few reads. I am very disappointed with this book, but from other reviews I know that many people love it.show more
