Written by Maurice Sendak • Illustrated by Maurice Sendak

Reviewed by Drew E. (age 6) and Roy S. (age 6)

There's this kid named Max and one night a forest grew in his room. And the walls became the world around him. He found a private boat for him. He sailed for over a year to where the wild things are. Then they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws. And they made him king of all wild things. He smelled good food across the island and he gave up being king.

We recommend this book because the pictures are labeled and that it's interesting that he sails to where the wild things are there are no such things as monsters.
