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.
