Maurice Sendak, 1928-2012. R.I.P.

Maurice Sendak, the author and illustrator best known for the 1963 classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are, died today of complications of a stroke. He was 83.

I certainly remember Where the Wild Things Are as amongst the very first books I ever gazed my eyes upon and its images remain with me to this very day. That's about the best tribute I can give. Now I must bid adieu. A hot supper awaits me.
