This week's book is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
In case you have never read this classic; this story is of a boy named Max who likes to wear a wolf suit and when he does he often acts a little mischievous. He is sent to his room where the real adventure begins. He travels to a strange land where the wild things live.
This book won the Caldecott Medal for the Most Distinguished Picture Book of the Year. And truly it mostly is a picture book, with one of two sentences per page. I was surprised when I saw it was going to be a movie. But it looks like it is going to be good.
Watch for yourself.
Another book I already reviewed, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has also been turned into a movie and will open in September.
Lucas loves this book and when I showed him the preview for the movie.. well let's just say we watched it again and again, a lot!
I am excited for these movies and it will be fun to see which classic book gets made into a movie next.
