Where the Wild Things Are
Winner Description: 
by Maurice Sendak, and published by Harper
Winner Blurb: 

In Where the Wild Things Are, Sendak has achieved the difficult feat of picturing a child's delight in the fantastic.  Max, sent supperless to bed for behaving like a "Wild Thing," creates for himself a world of Wild Things with whom he revels as their king.  In this highly original work of art, Sendak has made a unique contribution to the field of picture books.  He has created a timeless world of imagination, which is deliciously grotesque, kindly, and humorous--never terrifying.
