Caldecott winner Maurice Sendak’s classic tale of a young boy and his wild forest adventure will surely please your child—and the child within you. When a mischievous boy is sent to bed without supper, he sails off to a place where the ‘wild’ things are. Sendak’s beautiful illustrations reaffirm the notion that there’s no place like home.

I bought this book for my daughter when she was two. At first I thought she might be afraid of the monsters in the book but she wasn't and loved reading it. It's amazing, imaginative, fun, with wonderful illustrations. A great read for any age. I purchased this book at Children's Book of the Month Club where you can find more fantastic books just like this one.
