An anniversary edition to celebrate 60 years of Where the Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak's bestselling classic of twentieth-century children's literature

When Max puts on his wolf suit and makes mischief, his mother calls him 'Wild Thing' and sends him to bed without any supper. Alone in his room, Max enters a magical world and sets sail across the sea to the place where the wild things are. The wild things roar their terrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth and roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws . . .

But Max tames the wild things and is made their king.

Will he ever want to go home?
Industry Reviews
"Sendak is the daddy of them all when it comes to picture books - the words, the rhythm and the design are all wonderful."
S Magazine, Sunday Express

"The greatest picture book ever written"
Chris Riddell, Children's Laureate - Guardian

"Gripping, ingenious and uplifting . . . a shrewd, fierce, healing book"
Boyd Tonkin - Independent

"A timeless masterpiece. The illustrations, the fabulous monsters, the beautiful cross-hatching, and the surreal, dreamlike narrative beckons the reader to join the adventure. The themes are perfect for inspiring discussion on confronting life's scary things, mastering your fears and being brave, letting off steam, saying goodbye, and the comfort of returning home safe and sound"
Child Education

"An almost-perfect picture book stuffed with mischief, magic and meaning . . . Has a haunting depth that makes bedtime reading thrilling, a little scary, but also empowering"
Junior
