It seems entirely fitting that Maurice Sendak was born on exactly the same day that Mickey Mouse 1st made his cartoon debut--June 10, 1928. Though numerous of his personal stories had been light and funny, the most important ones--Where the Wild Factors Are, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There--dealt with anger, jealousy, abandonment, content that had never before been the subject of picture books. As nicely as covering career highlights, this easy to read, illustrated biography also describes the personal life of this genius. Sendak was crazy about cartoons and comic books, and at twelve, after seeing Disney's Fantasia, he decided that he was going to turn out to be an illustrator. His adore of childrens books began early: often sick and confined to bed, little Maurice read and study and study. Who Was Maurice Sendak is perfect for kids wild about a single of many most influential children's book artists of the twentieth century!
