Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, and many others, including his most recent work, Bumble-Ardy died on Tuesday. Mr. Sendak has one final book coming out in February. You can read a terrific article about him here.
The reading world is a better place for his work, for sure, and his
amazing contributions will continue to provide joy to millions of
children every day. Can't ask for much more of a legacy than that.
