Brilliant title to this post! Wish I had thought of it! Be wild, Maurice Sendak!

An era has passed.  Maurice Sendak has passed away at the age of 83 (1928-2012).

Where the Wild Things Are‘ was a staple of my childhood.  It inspired made up games filled with good and scary monsters.  Running around hooting and hollering on the vast acreage I called home.

His direct approach to storytelling helped shape generations of storytellers.

Mr. Sendak, thank you for all your wonderful creations.  Where ever you are, I hope you are running with the Wild Things.
