Celebrate Sendak!

Happy Birthday, Maurice!

June 10 was the 85th anniversary of Maurice Sendak’s birth. Sendak, celebrated children’s author and illustrator, is best known for his Caldecott Award-winning book, Where the Wild Things Are. Sendak paced away in May 2012.

To mark the anniversary of his birth, Google has created a spectacular "Google Doodle" that is a work of art, as well as a fitting tribute. You owe it to yourself to spend one minute and forty-six seconds viewing the “doodle” and celebrating Sendak.

You can enjoy the experience on Google, or you can watch a video of it here:
