Goodbye to Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak passed away today after complications from a stroke, and the world has lost a wonderfully talented writer of children's literature.  My sisters and I grew up reading his books, and I want my boys to find that same sense of wonder and excitement that we experienced while pouring over Outside Over There and Where the Wild Things Are, both of which still send shivers up my spine.  (Who lets their child wear a WOLF suit?)

Here is a wonderful tribute to Mr. Sendak, who is now where the wild things are.
