Tribute to Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak


I will remember you through all the beautiful stories you wrote and illustrated, which Google has done a darn good job animating!

And my own tribute:

Thank you Mr. Sendak for creating Where all the Wild Things are

Thank you Mr. Sendak for making it okay for children like me to possess our very own little monsters.

Thank you Mr. Sendak for making it fun for children like me, who grew up in plenty of loneliness and silence to have playmates that come in fur, claws, and a pug nose. Mine had horns and dressed in traditional Hanfu and we liked to play swing.

Thank you Mr. Sendak for teaching me how to work with my little monster to kick my little brother's butt. The only problem was sometimes I couldn't tell which one was more monster-ly.

Thank you Mr. Sendak. Though I didn't have a cape - if you discount shower curtain - nor a crown with scepter, I did have an umbrella that I paraded around my domain.

I still take the subway to work everyday with my monster, albeit little no more. 

Where is yours?
