Goodbye Mr. Sendak

What can anyone say about Maurice Sendak that his books can’t? At the end of the day all that matters is for me, In The Night Kitchen is just as good as Where the Wild Things Are.

“Maurice Sendak, widely considered the most important children’s book artist of the 20th century, who wrenched the picture book out of the safe, sanitized world of the nursery and plunged it into the dark, terrifying and hauntingly beautiful recesses of the human psyche, died on Tuesday in Danbury, Conn. He was 83.”
