I loved Where the Wild Things Are when I was a kid. Very sad.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I love his Nutcracker production with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. We watch the film every year.

I might be completely nuts, but I think he made a guest appearance at my grade school in CT a long time ago, when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I recall him making some drawings on an easel. Forgot about that until just now.

Had WTWTA as a kid, just bought it for our friend's daughter last year.

Ever since we watched the movie we now sleep "in a pile", and if our pooch nestles in with us it's "a real pile"

I think it's a good day to get out "Wild Things" for my daughter again. I've read it to her before, but I think she'll appreciate it more now.

He made some great children's books.

My favorites were WTWTA (of course) and Chicken Soup with Rice. Read them both to my kids a lot.

In April
I will go away
to far off Spain
or old Bombay
and dream about
hot soup all day.
Oh my oh once
oh my oh twice
oh my oh chicken soup with rice.

I heard an interview with him on NPR's Fresh Aire a few months ago. I wept as he spoke of the deaths he witnesses and how it wasn't fair he had to watch so many he cared about die...

He was a brilliant, angry genius. I'm grateful for the work he has done.

Let the wild rumpus start.

"Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children's letters--sometimes very hastily--but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, "Dear Jim: I loved your card." Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, "Jim loved your card so much he ate it." That to me was one of the highest compliments I've ever received. He didn't care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it."--Maurice Sendak

If anyone with that other 'pr0n'-imagery wished to "cover up" such, then just use pieces of tape or bandage and 'KENeuter' thus, or use the same to 'make' any? whistle
