Along with a groundbreaking story and iconic illustrations, let’s just call it what it is and say that Where the Wild Things Are has immaculate vibes. It’s perfectly spooky, playful, and imaginative. If you’re looking for something new that will satisfy fans of the Sendak original, check out these reads that follow children exploring the limits of their imagination, romping through art that feels instantly classic, and befriending monsters and wild things of all shapes and sizes. Home and a hot meal are always waiting on the other side.
(Don’t forget to find the little orange monster hidden on almost every page!)
They float on a warm nighttime breeze over forests and peaks.
They tumble down a mountain carpeted in night blossoms.
They sail in silver ships over ribbons of moonlight,
and arrive at a shining pavilion at the very top of the world.
Now the Night Frolic can begin.
