Maurice Sendak… sailed off through night and day

Maurice Sendak, author and illustrator of some of the most inspiring children’s books, died today at the age of 83. I remember reading “Where the Wild Things Are” and wishing I could sail away like Max. His books became staples in the homes of every child born after 1960. My oldest daughter considers “Where the Wild Things Are”, “In the Night Kitchen” and “Outside Over There” the blueprints to her childhood.

Thank you Maurice Sendak for the stories…
