I don't normally care when famous people die, but...damn.

I don't want to see them cry.
The guy who wrote Where the Wild Things are? Damn, that sucks.

That weird kid who dreams a lot
He wrote Little Bear too, didn't he? sad
Maybe I shouldn't have eaten all those spicy wings last night...

He only illustrated it, but he gets associated with it more often than the author does.

There's another essential piece of my childhood...sad

I don't know him, but that sucks. sad

Has Clearly Gone Bahmi
Aw, damn. I loved In The Night Kitchen (and the kerfuffle over it, but that's another story) when I was a kid. (That's right, my first introduction to his work wasn't Where the Wild Things Are.)

Why Does Tyn Not Approve?
The first thing we do, let's ban all the Fanwork Bans.

All hail
Really? I was wondering why they showed Where the Wild Things Are on the news (everyone was talking and I couldn't hear).
So, in the U.S., randomly stripping is a signal that you want to sing the national anthem? - That Human

I recommend everyone to watch the May 8 2012 episode of Colbert Report. They had just recently had Colbert talk with Maurice to promote his kids book, but the May 8 episode talks more about some of Sendak's philosophies a bit.

Did he have a family?
You give me joy, You give me hope, You give me love that doesn't change

I listened to the Really Rosie soundtrack in his honour. R.I.P., Maurice.

I loved In The Night Kitchen when I was little (well, littler).

Sadly, four-year-old me scribbled all over our copy of that book., and it's barely recognizable.
If you want any of my avatars, just Pm me

I'd truly appreciate any avatar of a reptile sleeping in a Nice Hat

ATC: Watch this if you can. Hopefully, it'll make you feel better about drawing on the book.

Wait-the quote that I was looking for isn't in this segment. WTF? I could have sworn I just heard it o_o

Long story short: Kid liked his work so much, he ate it, and Maurice was really happy to hear that.

Pika is the bombchu!
He wrote a nice "Appreciation" as a forward to a reissue of The Phantom Tollbooth.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
