The Wild Things Are Here

One of my most treasured reads as a child was "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. It seems surprising to realise that the first release of the book was in fact 1963!
I am now eagerly awaiting the release of the new film adaptation, and I just hope that the film does not dilute the wonderful character of the story which was so beautifully captured within Sendak's most perfect illustrations.
The Morgan Library in New York will be exhibiting these original illustrations, allowing visitors to view the very thought processes behind each sketch, to witness the development of these remarkable images with which Sendak enhanced his heart warming story. Enjoy it NY!
