I don't normally care when famous people die, but...damn.
Immanentizing the eschaton
The guy who wrote Where the Wild Things are? Damn, that sucks.

Absurd little bird
He wrote Little Bear too, didn't he? sad
You guys got it all confused, I'm a human and *you're* the Zoroark!

Haha, I'm kidding! Or am I...?

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

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.)

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).

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?
And it's a long way forward, so trust in me. I'll give them shelter, like you've done for me

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.

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.
