Why Was the Book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ a Trailblazer? A Classic Reconsidered

And why has it lasted long enough to inspire a new Spike Jonze movie? A review of the trailblazing children’s book by Maurice Sendak appeared in the “Classic Picture Books Every Child Should Read” series on One-Minute Book Reviews.
