Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak passed away today. He was the author of “Where the Wild Things Are” and I loved him very much. Back in November, we did an art project inspired by his story and art. We also watched the movie and discussed each of the main characters.

Since tomorrow is a Pro-D day and you’ll most likely be looking for something to read, I strongly recommend the following articles:


1) Radio-Canada: Au revoir, Maurice Sendak

2) CBC: Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak dies

(make sure to read the part titled “Holocaust infused into Sendak’s work” in the above article)

3) LA Times: Maurice Sendak: ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ author by the numbers

4) Maurice Sendak | 1928-2012 (pictures)
