Thank you and farewell to the wonderful Maurice Sendak

Yesterday the great American artist Maurice Sendak, author and illustrator of the multi-award-winning children’s book Where the Wild Things Are, died at the grand old age of 83 after suffering a stroke.  I know that every kid and mum and dad who has loved his scary, exciting and beautiful adventure about Max, the boy who sailed off in a boat to where the Wild Things are – and all the plays and films made out of it – will be feeling a little bit sad today. But maybe we should also celebrate his life and his amazing talent, and just feel glad that while he has left us now, his work lives on forever!
