Maurice Sendak was a person of unique sensibilities, yet he touched millions with his art. This slideshow does a particularly good job of limning his many facets. I was particularly taken with their description of his "Nutshell Library"—I've got to get a hold of that! My sister teaches elementary school, so she has an undying relationship with Wild Things, even to the extent of adorning her house with giant cutouts of the characters. I'm more of any opera person, so I remember him for his wonderful set designs for Mozart's The Magic Flute. Have you seen the film of Where the Wild Things Are? Which of his books are your favorites? I'd love to hear about your responses to his work.
