Where the Wild Things Are is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Maurice Sendak's Caldecott Medal-winning picture book grew to become one of the most highly acclaimed and best-loved children's books of all time. A must have for every child's bookshelf.
Bring Max's imaginative journey into the next generation with this special anniversary edition. Resume the wild rumpus as this classic comes to life like never before with new reproductions of Maurice Sendak's artwork.
New technology faithfully captures the color and detail of the original illustrations. Sendak himself enthusiastically endorsed this impressive new interpretation of his art before his death in 2012. This iconic story has inspired a movie, an opera, and the imagination of generations.
