Farewell to Maurice Sendak

I just wanted to say thank you to a wonderful children's author/illustrator who passed away this morning- Maurice Sendak. He is the beloved writer and illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are and my personal favorite from childhood, Chicken Soup with Rice.

He had a stroke on Friday which placed him in the hospital. He died early Tuesday morning. He was 83.
Goodbye Maurice!


  1. I saw an interview with him just a few weeks ago. Still a bright-eyed, opinionated, irascible genius. Bye Maurice, Thanks.
