Where the Wild Things Are
Bad-tempered Max, having been sent to bed, takes a voyage to the land where the wild things are and becomes their king. He eventually returns to find his supper is ‘still hot’. Whether the voyage is real or in Max’s own imagination is for the reader to decide. A classic picture book with a deceptively simple surface which travels deep into a child’s emotional world.
