Unfortunately we lost a great writer today. I don't know how much of an impact he has had in your lives, but he sure did have one on mine. I am talking about the great Maurice Sendak, the writer of Where The Wild Things Are. I grew up with this book. It is one of the first books I can remember reading, and I read it often. I Still think back on that book a lot, and I really enjoyed the movie they made out of it. I am so sad to see someone who had so much talent go.
“But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go- We’ll eat you up- we love you so!”

P.s. How do you get something to unhighlight? I tried to unhighlight the quote and somehow managed to highlight the rest of the text. Thanks


  1. I love this book and this writer! It is definitely sad to know we have lost him now, thank you Tanner for sharing. I too grew up reading this story in particular and recently read it to my little cousin, then allowed her to watch the movie. I must say it is one of her favorite books and movies for this year, which makes me really happy.

    To unhighlight just hit the icon before spell check, it's a capital T with a red x by it, it should remove the current format the words are in.

  2. This broke my heart when I heard about it. He was so spry when he was on Colbert's show not too long ago. He'll be desperately missed.

    Also Adam Yauch of Beastie Boys fame.

    So my childhood took a couple of hits.

    Waiting to hear about the third...

  3. I didn't know that he died. That's horrible. I've lost a part of my childhood!
