R. I. P. Maurice Sendak
Maurice Sendak died last night at age 83 from complications due to a recent stroke.
Sendak authored and illustrated hundreds of children's titles, most notably, the Caldecott Medal-winning
Where The Wild Things Are.
Despite many attempts at censorship over the last 40+ years, Sendak's work inspired generations of young readers and carved him a place as one of the most beloved illustrators of all time.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Sendak. You are missed already.
