Maurice Sendak, 1928 - 2012

Thank you for all you gave us, from the memorable and the magical to the weird and worrisome. Your influence on the world of picture books and the realms of childhood will never be forgotten.

Thanks you for your post. Sendak's work is a reminder of the terrifying and wonderful world we inhabit both as children and adults. He will be missed.
