As a child, Maurice Sendak loved to have his father read to him before bed. Likewise, I have loved his book “Where the Wild Things Are” for my entire life. This book was a bedtime favorite for me when I was a child. I’ve read it to countless children and have bought it for many a gift. The story of a young boy who is sent to his room and his make believe world unfolds onto the pages.Who couldn’t love the imaginings of a boy named Max?  Who wouldn’t want to be welcomed into his world? Director Spike Jonze has made this longtime classic into a movie, to be released on October 16th
