From Maurice Sendak, the unrivalled illustrator of Where The Wild Things Are, and long-time collaborator and friend Arthur Yorinks.
This never-before published tale is an imaginative romp through the world of Limboland. Two great friends – a friendship largely inspired by Maurice Sendak's and Arthur Yorkink's own – must brave a monster, a singing cow, and several berserk goats, to complete their quest. And the quest they're undertaking? To find a present in time for the wedding of the sugar beets!
The pair originally created this tale many years ago, and it has now been reworked by Arthur Yorinks as an ode to their 40-year friendship. With Maurice Sendak's jubilant illustrations and full of the wit and sheer imagination of this creative duo, this new publication is a song to friendship, creativity, and joy. With the classic Maurice Sendak cocktail of depth, spontaneity and humour, this unseen tale will delight fans of both creators.
Read-along with the story in this book and CD edition!
One night Max puts on his wolf suit and makes mischief of one kind and another, so his mother calls him 'Wild Thing' and sends him to bed without his supper.
That night a forest begins to grow in Max's room and an ocean rushes by with a boat to take Max to the place where the wild things are. Max tames the wild things and crowns himself as their king, and then the wild rumpus begins.
But when Max has sent the monsters to bed, and everything is quiet, he starts to feel lonely and realises it is time to sail home to the place where someone loves him best of all.

A beautifully endearing tale from author Charlotte Zolotow and illustrated by WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE creator Maurice Sendak.
Maurice Sendak was born in Brooklyn, New York. He began by illustrating other authors' books for children, but the first book that he both wrote and illustrated was Kenny's Window, published in 1956. In his lifetime, he illustrated over 80 books, and received many awards, including the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are. In 1970 he was the first American to win the Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator's Medal. He passed away in May 2012.
