Where the Wild Things Are
New York: Harper & Row, 1963. First edition, later printing. Oblong quarto. Inscribed by the author, "For Laura Marice Sendak Oct. '70." An excellent example with some rubbing and toning to the boards in a near fine dust jacket. "Wild Things!' When Max's sojourn among them unfolded in kinematic splendor in 1963, adults trembled and children reveled. Reaching back into his own Brooklyn childhood, Sendak created the enduring child-hero Max, who overcomes his fears and achieves catharsis in a colorful fantasy tableau. The book was awarded the 1964 Caldecott Medal by the American Library Association" (NYPL Books of the Century 212).
