This was one of my favorite books as a kid. Children everywhere have been loving this book since 1963. It really is a timeless classic when it comes to Children's books. With very unique artwork this book has the ability to take the reader to another place and really, that's what this book is all about. It features young boy named Max who dresses up in a wolf costume and ends up making a giant mess in his house. He then is sent to bed without his supper. Max's bedroom then mysteriously transforms into another world and he winds up sailing to an island inhabited by crazy looking beasts known as the "Wild Things."
After intimidating the creatures, Max is crowned king of the Wild Things and spends some time exploring his new kingdom along side his new loyal subjects. However, he starts to feel lonely and decides he wants to return home. The Wild Things are not happy about this at all. What will happen to Max?
