A great loss to the world if books and libraries!

Where the Wild Things Are is one of the best books I read as a child. Maurice Sendak was a truly wonderful author and he will be missed. My heart goes to his family and friends. May they find a measure of comfort in knowing God is near those broken at heart and those crushed in the spirit he saves.

Sendak was a magical writer and a good friend. He will be missed by children of all ages. He was a mentor to all those who loved his works and were inspired to write like him. My life was made better for having known this wonderful man!

Feels like a hole has been left here on planet earth. Gregory Macguire's description of his last day with Sendak is extraordinary. My husband and I share many things, not the least is that Sendak's Nutshell Library (Pierre said, "I don't care!") was a huge part of our childhoods.
