Maurice Sendak Dead At 83

Children's author Maurice Sendak, whose beloved book Where The Wild Things Are came out in 1963, died of complications from a recent stroke. What do you think?

"Stroke is the most common complication of participating in a wild rumpus."

"Maurice Sendak introduced me to the world of reading. Well, not so much the world of reading as awesome drawings of monsters."

"At least now when my kid tries to avoid bedtime by asking questions about the Wild Things, I can shut him down with, 'We’ll never know, because he’s dead.'"
