WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE is often touted as the perfect picture book and the one to study if you’re an aspiring PB writer. I remember, when I first read it (my oldest received it as a newborn gift) finding Max’s naughtiness distinctly refreshing. His smirky, little face could be found on any one of my kids. This is a must-have for anyone who once was or has loved a “naughty” kid. I’m thrilled it took #1 in Betsy Bird’s Top 100 Picture Books Poll. Tell me why you love WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and win a copy of the book. I’ll draw a winner from the first ten readers to comment on this blog post.
