This older version of a picture book was ahead of it's time. It starts out as a very traditional picture book and slowly develops into a modern one as Max's imagination grows. Max idea of going into a different world where huge monsters were and not being afraid could be a great lesson for those children who feel they can't sleep because of monsters.I recommend this Contemporary Realistic Fiction as a great bed-time story to read to your child.

Max after being sent to his room without dinner takes the reader on an adventure inside his imaginary land. The story has a dreamlike style, which is mirrored in muted illustrations. This classic stories theme leans toward growing up, mischief, and creativity. Best for kids Kindergarten through 3rd grade.

When Max gets in trouble for acting like a “wild thing,” he is sent to his room without dinner. He falls asleep and dreams about traveling on a boat to a land full of wild things, where he becomes their king. He soon realizes that he wants to be back with his family who really loves him, and sails the boat back home and to his bedroom, where his dinner is waiting. This is a classic book, one that is full of fantasy and adventure but also some simple but important life lessons. The illustrations are very detailed and the monsters all wonderfully presented. Just like Max, they appear at first to be terrifying and out of control, but are actually very soft and big-hearted.

Sendak’s classic tale Where the Wild Things Are makes all readers run wild. Sendak’s book is beautifully illustrated, as well as providing a starting point for imaginative play for young readers. In the tale, Max is a relatable character for the wildness within us all. Sendak’s beloved classic will not only be an instant favorite among new readers, but still holds a place in our hearts for readers who’ve read the book many times. The ending provides some advice for young readers too, because sometimes always getting things your way is fun for too long.

I have enjoyed this book since I was a child. I love how the title matches what the story is about. The word "wild" is an accurate description of what one boy's imagination can come up with. Max, the little boy in the story, believes himself to be just that, A wild thing and after getting set to his room with no dinner he embarks on a journey to rule the wild things. He quickly discoveries that some things might be too wild for him!

The little boy in the story involves the readers with his journey to see where the wild things live. The illustrations are amazing, full of detail! One cannot open this book and not fall in love with it.
