confessions of a modern mom

RIP Maurice Sendak

I can’t believe Maurice Sendak is gone from this world. What an incredible influence this singular man was on generations of children…

Rest in Peace, Maurice Sendak. You brought joy and magic to generations. Max and the Wild Things are very sad today.

He created magical worlds that you could really sink your teeth into. His wasn’t the stuff of sweet and fluffy. His stories and illustrations bordered on the nightmarish and scary. But his was a world of truths. He took his readers seriously – yes, you can do that with kids! He prized his medium. He gave us a gift of joy like no other.

You will be missed, Mr. Sendak – you scary, shaggy man with an unlimited imagination. May you live forever as king of the wild beasts that you so lovingly conjured up for us.
