Goodbye Maurice Sendak. I was so sorry to read of your passing this morning. You gave me and my boys so much joy reading your stories and enjoying the books you illustrated. We love the "Bears" series you illustrated. I read Where the Wild Things Are to my son Max every night at least once for many years and I do mean years. It was so refreshing to read about children that were a little grouchy and afraid, with attitude - just like real children in your books. Thank you again for all the wonderful bedtimes you gave to my boys and I. Peace to you Mr. Sendak.
