RIP, Maurice Sendak

ABC reports:

Maurice Sendak, author of the beloved children’s book, “Where the Wild Things Are,” has died. He was 83.

Sendak’s longtime editor told the New York Times that Sendak died of complications from a stroke.

The Brooklyn-born author had already written seven children’s books when, in 1963, Harper & Row published ”Where the Wild Things Are.”  Sendak wrote and illustrated the unconventional story about an unruly boy named Max dressed in a wolf suit who, sent to his room by his mother as punishment for misbehaving, travels to a land of monsters and proves himself the wildest thing of all.
