Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
Max is being so terrible that his mother sends him to his room without supper. But Max doesn't care--he sails off to the land of the Wild Things, and they make him his king. There, Max can be as terrible as he pleases, and the Wild Things join in the rumpus. Finally, Max is tired of being wild, and yearns to go home. Marvelous pictures and the superb story combine to make this a quintessential picture book. In it, readers will recognize their own wild side.
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Sendak presents an image of children not as sentimentalized little dears but as people coping with complex emotions such as anger, fear, frustration, wonder, and awareness of their own vulnerability. Max feels anger at his mother, acts out his aggression in a fantasy land as he becomes "king" of his wild and ungovernable forces, and returns hungry, sleepy, and peaceful to the real world, where his porridge is still hot. This is a well-earned and reassuring happy ending for all children wrestling with human nature's darker emotions. It is also available in Spanish. 1988 (orig.

This is the beloved Sendak classic story of a child's "time out" for bad behavior turned into an adventure by his own imagination; this time told in Spanish! This is perfect not only for Spanish speaking or bilingual children, but for fans of Dora the Explorer and Diego who have developed an interest in Spanish and need encouragement to continue their studies. I read the two versions side by side with my three year old who is a big Dora and Diego fan and he loved it. I find myself picking up a bit of Spanish right along with him.
