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.

Max acts wild and gets sent to bed without dinner so he imagines that he is transported to a land of wild things where he becomes the leader. He becomes lonely in this land and returns home where a hot dinner is waiting for him.
