Before we get to Where the Wild Things Are products list, a little background, and our take on the story:
About the Story
This story is one of anger, fear and ultimately comfort. In reality, this story originated from the author being disgusted with his relatives as a little boy.
The reasons are as follows: his aunts and uncles liked to bestow upon him and his family weekly visits, the big stained yellow teeth, them acting crazy, and they always seemed to have red eyes, and for some reason they pinched his cheek with every weekly visit.
He viewed them as grotesque, and as an escape he would draw caricatures depicting negative features on the drawings.
Tzippy, Moishe, Aaron, Emile, and Bernard were the names of his actual relatives that would eventually end up as characters in his famous book.
Isn’t that cool? 🙂
Where the Wild Things Are Book
One of many Americans’ favorites including mine, this book has been voted Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.”
Rightly so because this book is one of adventure, full of spirit and allows children to explore their curiosity’s about life, and what can lay in their imaginations. This book is where all of these Where the Wild Things Are Products got started.
And who doesn’t like dancing in the moonlight? I for one do.
The moon and stars have always had a piece of my heart, and always will.
It is an escape to a cool night and a boundless imagination for those children and adults that have the right perspective in life. 🙂
This one shows Max and one of the “Monsters ” sharing the moonlight on a dark night under the stars.
As you can see, one of the Monster is almost taking a bow to Max, crowning him “King.”
Max is declared King in this awesome scene from Maurice Sendak’s American classic children’s book.
This tale and image is one of many children’s favorites.
You almost feel an explainable and very brief vacation when gazing into this picture.
A real life drawing from the author himself. Just like the ones he drew as young boy.
Amazing, original Sendak drawing by the Author himself. Only one of these exists.
Where the Wild Things Are Products are a result of THIS amazing story.
This is truly one of those few rare books you can find that really can be enjoyed equally by a child and a grown-up.
It’s a wild rumpus.
Sendak’s color illustrations (perhaps his finest) are beautiful, and each turn of the page brings new magical illustrations that can be explored in depth.
You will take something different from the book each time you read it.
The wild things with their unbalanced 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 that he uses in this book: one of his trademarks. They lend the perfect touch of stream of consciousness to the storybook, which seems to float in between the land of dreams and a the forefront of a child’s imagination.
And it really does stem from Sendak’s own childhood.
The book explores other worlds full of strange creatures where, although he not is entirely safe and comfortable, he is King there.
Then when he returns home to safety, he is rewarded with comfort and a warm meal.
The story is about a young boy named Max.
Max is hanging out at home and then he just all of a sudden decides to dress in his wolf costume, and then proceeds to wreak such havoc through his household!!!…
He is then sent to bed without his supper.
Perhaps as part of a dream or an imagination, Max’s bedroom transforms magically and mysteriously into a jungle environment.
He eventually ends up sailing to a remote island inhabited by scary big beasts with funny faces known as the “Wild Things.”
After managing to intimidate the creatures, Max somehow becomes the king of the Wild Things, and enjoys romping around with the wild things for a little while..
Anyways, he eventually decides to return home, and the Wild Things are then sad to see him go.
After finally getting home to his bedroom, Max finds a hot supper waiting for him there back in the real world.
