The sad news came out today that famed children's book author Maurice Sendak has passed away. He was 83 years old. Thanks to ANer hoofprints who brought this to the Forums earlier today.
Mr. Sendak was best known for his masterpiece "Where the Wild Things Are" first published in 1963. The book became a feature film in 2009. Gene Deitch animated an American-Czech co-production of the book in 1973, which would make a fine tribute to Maurice Sendak by showcasing the video here.
