Coming this October, one of my most favorite and classic picture books of all time is being brought to the big screen, “Where the Wild Things Are,” by Maurice Sendak. This beloved story of Max, who at bedtime one night journeys far from home (and Mom) to the place where the Wild Things live, and where he has all sorts of adventures, but eventually finds that home is where his heart truly lies, looks to be a truly wonderful film. By Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation”), from the trailer it looks quirky, centered around hope, and truly inspirational–for both adults and children alike. I can’t wait! For a preview of the wonders to come, check out the trailer:If you haven’t already gotten your children Sendak’s wonderful works, let this be an inspiration to start! And if you haven’t read them yet yourself, they are really a must. You are never too old for this story.
