Favorite book as a child. I would make my mom read it to me every night. I think she might have been even more excited than I was when the film came out. RIP.

R.I.P, I hold Where The Wild Things Are dear to my childhood. At least he lived a long life.

Sad day. Funny how the title of the articles refers to a book that isn't where the wild things are. RIP
