max! wild things! mischief!

I was skeptical but this looks amazing.

And if that weren't enough this just in:
"Sendak mentioned in a September, 2008 article in The New York Times that he is gay, and had been living with his partner, psychoanalyst Eugene Glynn, from 1957 until Dr. Glynn’s death in May 2007."
via wikipedia

Okay, it's not just in, as evident by the quote. Am I the last book-loving queer in North America to find this out?

How I love Max. I'm so making a wolf suit for my first grandchild. If and when that ever pressure.

"And it was still warm."

Tal wrote and directed an adaptation of Wild Things for the stage, performed last fall. Featuring the music of Frank Zappa as performed by Ensemble Ambrosius no less.

That is wonderful. I assume Franklin is a Wild Things fan. Few children's books are as ageless as this one.

This is on my "Must See" list. I love the book... way back when and still now.
