Where the Wild Things Are….

One of my all time favorites, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak has made it to the big time….that is, if you consider The Colbert Report to be the big time. Which I do.

I’m not going to write my analysis or review of it.  Many, many experts have written about it. It’s awesome. ‘Nuff said.

If you haven’t seen it already, check out the two-part interview, in which Maurice does not let Stephen get the better of him.

And if that isn’t enough for you, listen to Christopher Walken read Where the Wild Things Are. My husband and I have listened to it three times now, and we can’t stop laughing. It’s hysterical!
