Where the Wild Things Are

Written and Illustrated by Maurice Sendak

Max is a "wild thing," and after a fight with his mother, he leaves home and travels a long distance to live with his own kind. But he soon learns that being king in a faraway place isn't nearly as much fun as being home, where he was loved and cared for. Vivid illustrations complement the spare but moving text.
