Where The Wild Things Are
Maurice Sendak information
Some intresting facts about my illustrator are: 1. He was born June 10,1928 in Brooklyn, NY 2. He died May 8 2012, Danbury, CT. 3. He wrote some other books such as In The Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, Little Bear, and of course Where The Wild Things Are. 4. His education was Art Students League Of New York. 5. Some other awards he won were the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and many more besides the Caldecott Medal.
The book I read won the Caldecott because each word was carefully chosen and fits together well. It's a great book. The writing and illustrations are great!
