Can You Name the "Wild Things" Monsters?

When the book Where the Wild Things Are came out 30 years ago, none of the monsters had names. It wasn't until they became toys, that the naming began. Then the movie came along and the monsters got named again. Yes, that means some monsters have two names. And some are new thanks to the movie. Yes, it's complicated. But the question remains: Can you name them?

Maurice Sendak on his work, childhood, inspirations

Maurice Sendak talks about his work, childhood and inspirations, in a DVD by the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, www.rosenbach.org. The Rosenbach is the sole repository of the original artwork of famed author and illustrator Maurice Sendak and a foremost authority on all things Sendak. Author of Where the Wild Things Are and nearly 100 other books, Sendak, now 81 years old, chose the Rosenbach to be the permanent home of his work in the early 1970s thanks to shared literary and collecting interests. The Rosenbach's Sendak collection is the largest collection of Sendakiana in the world, with over 10,000 preliminary sketches, final drawings, manuscripts, books, and ephemera.

The DVD, "There's a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak: A Retrospective in Words and Pictures" explores the masterful storytellers extraordinary career through his own words as the author talks about his favorite characters and the many influences and settings of his richest stories. Get the DVD at www.rosenbach.org! Produced by Portia Productions.
