But Max is homesick so he returns home to discover his supper waiting in his room for him.

Reader's Reviews

1.

I feel the book is seriously overlooked by many. The story intertwines all things that a child can imagine up when emotions run wild. The kid wants to feel he/she is the one calling the shots until they realize that it is lonely being the boss. I will now always treasure this book to the end, and tell this story to my children. I give it a thumbs up.

It's so sad that Maurice Sendak died frm stroke complications yesterday. R.I.P. Maurice Sendak! We'll miss U and your creative children's literature,too. There was an exhibit about him @ the Contemporary Jewish Museum 2 years ago in January. I didn't C it,b/c I was @ school. Where The Wild Things Are was adapted in2 a feature film.
