Maurice Sendak (1928 – 2012)

Maurice Sendak, the author and illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are died today.  For that book, he was awarded the Caldecott Medal, given once a year to the illustrator for the best illustrated children's story.  Here is a reading of it along with the pictures.

He also wrote and illustrated the often banned In the Night Kitchen.

 And illustrated the original Little Bear series by Else Holmelund Minarik.

So long, Mr. Sendak.  The wild rumpus won't be the same without you.
