This is one of those children's classics that everyone tells you to read. I, unfortunately, did not read this book until I was an adult. I felt like I missed out on a great storybook during my childhood. But no matter. I read it now and that's all that matters!
And I am so glad that I did read it! It's fantastic! I love reading about this unruly boy with a great imagination. I always believed that imagination is a great tool for everyone! Kids and adults. Without imagination, you can't have stories and without stories, there wouldn't be any books. I am glad that this book promotes imagination and going on adventures. It helps children to explore the world in a way that I think a lot of people forget about.
Sendak did a great job in writing and illustrating this book! There's a very good reason this book is considered a classic and I cannot recommend it enough!
