    I wonder if he got to destroy someone before he went...

    Truly a loss.

    He's in a better place now, where the wild things from our dreams are.

    Sad news. Where the Wild Things Are was a staple of my childhood. I also loved his work on Little Bear.

    I remember how Sendak responded to criticism of the movie adaptation of that book: "People who deem it too disturbing for children should go to hell. I saw the most horrendous movies that were unfit for a child's eyes. So what? I managed to survive." That guy was one in a million.

    RIP. Before I ever read Harry Potter in elementary school, there was "Where the Wild Things Are." It remains to be my favorite young children's book ever. Little Bear was also my favorite cartoon when I was a toddler.
