“And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”
“Where the Wild Things Are,” by Maurice Sendak was first published in 1963, and the movie, directed by Spike Jonze, will be in theaters Friday. Although I’ve watched several trailers, the above featurette was particularly interesting to me. It documents how Sendak and Jonze worked together on the film and how Jonze was true to the original work, while infusing his own style.
Decatur Public Library is hosting a “Wild Book Celebration” at 4 p.m. Thursday. The celebration will feature Sendak’s classic and your pre-schoolers through fifth graders will enjoy a read aloud, games and crafts.
