Maurice Sendak

In Honor of Maurice Sendak

In honor of Maurice Sendak's passing, I would like to share a couple of articles and stories that have been done in the past two days.  He was an amazing author and illustrator.  I think most children, young and old, have a special memory of a book he wrote.  I hope you enjoy some of the stories below.
