Maurice Sendak 1928-2012

Today beloved Children’s author Maurice Sendak passed away at the age of 83.  Maurice wrote and illustrated many books over his fifty year career but none as famous or as influential as “Where the Wild Things Are.”  Below is a link to a fantastic interview he did with Bill Moyer from 2004, as well as an extremely funny 2-part video of his interview with Stephen Colbert. Lets all Roar our Terrible Roars tonight in honor of his passing.
