    Where the wild things are

    Maurice Sendak passed away. I will have to re-read "Where the Wild Things Are" today. Was one of my favorite childhood books.

    If you are a big fan, keep your eye on stephen colbert for a few days. He's been working with sendak. Did a hilarius interview in january. I laughed for days.

    What a great story (with wonderful illustrations).

    Sad indeed.

    Thanks for the tip on Colbert's interest/relationship with Sendak Eamon, I will skip Seinfeld reruns and tune in for a few days.
