I am so saddened to hear the news of Maurice's passing. I'm just one of millions of 40-something adults who grew up with "Where the Wild Things Are" and all his other books. I've read it to my own boys (5 & 7) several dozen times. Next week, their elementary school is holding their Spring Concert, and it just so happens that their theme is "Where the Wild Things Are", complete with song and dance and costumes. Perhaps it would touch his heart to see ~500 kindergarten, 1st & 2nd graders putting their feelings into the spirit of that book and performing for their families. Perhaps, wherever he is, he'll get to see it. God bless all his friends and loved ones who must surely be in pain at this time. Rest in peace, Maurice.
