    I didn't want to add any children's books - but this one was just too cool... Update: Saw the movie - the book was much better! ...

    This book is crap, and let me tell you why. The kid is a jerk and is sent to his room without supper. He proceeds to go to some magical place where these monsters live and he bosses them around and is mean to them. Then he gets back home...having not learned that being a mean jerk is w...

    I have no doubt that this book damaged me, psychologically, as a small child. It is one of the earliest books I vividly remember reading aloud to myself, and I remember the first time my mother read it to me before she put me to bed. Here's the gist of the plot: A little boy named Max ...

    "Where the Wild Things Are" is one of the books I remember vividly from my childhood. While I'm not sure I would call it a "favorite" (it didn't completely resonate with me as some books did, nor was it a "cozy" sort of story that I loved reading over and over), there was something utt...

    The classic. I would take this on a desert island. So much to explore and interpret in the words and the pictures. I'm afraid my girls don't like the book as much as I do. But sooner or later, they'll come around. I see quite a few people complaining about Max being a little shit an...

    Another 5 star! Man, I'm getting generous. You guys just keep bringing up stories that KICK TRASH! This is the greatest children's book in the history of time as far as I'm concerned. And I'll tell you something WICKED AWESOME about it that I figured out when I researched it for a play...

    Of all the books I read my kids, and there are many, this is my favourite to perform. It is so easy to turn Where the Wild Things Are into a a big, rollicking tickle fest, and I am never able to resist the urge. When those Wild Things show up with their "terrible roars" and "terribl...

    Please visit our blog www.twogalsandabook.com for this review and others! I can still remember reading this for the first time in my grade school library. The pictures and illustrations can be a little scary at times, but they still remain incredible to me. I love children's books t...

    A little boy in a wolf suit is a little too rambunctious and is sent to bed without supper. Soon his room grows into a forest and a boat on the ocean carries little Max to where the wild things are. When he arrives Max is the sariest monster of them all. Max is crowned king and announc...

    Like a gremlin crouched in the back of a dim cave, Where the Wild Things Are lay on my cousin's bedroom floor. My cousin was in kindergarden and I was being babysat by my aunt, busy in the kitchen downstairs - might as well have been miles away. The bedroom shades were drawn, the house...

    What kind of mother will send his child to bed without dinner? Statistics say the many Filipinos go to bed with empty stomach. They just sleep so that they'll forget that they are hungry. Living in a Pacific island when I was a young boy, our family was poor too. However, my mother ...

    "Mom. Mom. Mo-om. Mom. MOM!" My mom whips around. "WHAT??!" "CanIgetabook?" "What?" "Can... I... get... a... book...?" "How much is it?" "$8.50." "What is it?" I brandish a copy of Where The Wild Things Are from behind my back. "Don't you already have that?" ...

    It is often difficult to review a book that was and still is one of my favorite all-time picture books. I adore everything about Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, from the brilliant text to the expressive accompanying illustrations. And I also with all my heart appreciate the...

    I didn't realize this was The Odyssey for so long. It seems so obvious now! It's the Cyclops part. Polyphemus. Which makes Max's mom a stand-in for Penelope, keeping his dinner hot for him as he sails "in and out of weeks and almost over a year," and that's a little weird but ...

    My copy of this book is nearly fifty years old. It was read to me when I was tiny and I read it to my children when they were small. When we lived in the States I discovered the play figures in a bargain bin in a toy store and bought them for my kids too. This guy was always my favo...

    Where the Wild Things Are What's the moral of this story? Some might say Sendack's work is a testament to the unbridled powers of a child's imagination. Others would posit that the true virtue of Where the Wild Things Are stems from the reversal of a timeless power dynamic in which...

    My kids weren't so keen on this beloved children's story but I loved the illustrations, although, the story was a little bit disturbing if you pay close attention to what the little boy is doing or threatening to do. Hmmm? ...

    So not my normal choice of read. But it was a me and little one book, where I read and he listens or pretends to...hopefully we can nail down the 'pretend to listen' game with the kid. (But not with me, because I'm the favorite aunt--duh.) Anyway, the story was...meh to me. I rememb...

    I loved this so much, I begged to star in it in an elementary school play. I won the lead role but had to share it with another classmate as we were doing 8 performances and couldn't be out of classes for rehearsals that often! I got to be rowdy... even though I was the quietest child ...

    3.5 Stars Small fry was utterly enchanted, and I think we both loved Max?s unbridled excitement. The whole story reads like a love-letter to childish imagination. But Max was also a mean little snoot who threatened to eat his mother and was a little tyrant to the Wild Things....

    I have read the story of Max about 1,000,000 times and my kids love it too. The illustrations are magical and the text is beyond wonderful. It is one of the most fun and rewarding books for a parent to read to a kid (lots of fun making dancing sounds and monster sounds!) and features j...
