Purchased on Mighty Ape

I remember this book from when I was a kid many years ago and have to admit I still love it today, I bought this so I can let my grandkids enjoy it as much as I did.

What can be better than a naughty kids day dreaming of monsters in a far away place only to be brought back to reality by his hungry stomach, like this story kids haven't changed ;0)


The winner of the Caldecott Medal 1964, this story of Max's adventures when he sails away to the land where the wild things are continues to delight new generations. Marvelous pictures and a superb story combine to make this a truly classic picture book.

When Max puts on hiswolf suit and makes mischief, his mother calls him 'Wild Thing' and sends him to bedwithout any supper. But Max is not scared. Instead, Max tames the wild things and is made their king. When things have gone far enough, Max sends the wild things off to bed without theirsupper and returns to the safety of his bedroom. Alone in his room, Max enters amagical world and sets sail across the sea to the placewhere the wild things are. The wild things roar theirterrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth and roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws …
