Maurice Sendak, 1928-2012

In case you haven’t heard yet:

“Maurice Sendak, the children’s author and illustrator best known for the 1963 classic “Where the Wild Things Are,” died Tuesday in Danbury, Conn., reportedly of complications from a stroke. He was 83.”

Sad to lose such a powerful voice and talented artist in children’s literature. I hope many others will carry on his legacy of taking children seriously and providing them with engaging stories and compelling art.
