"We'll Eat You Up, We Love You So!"

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 10:11 PM

I’ve always been a big fan of Maurice Sendak, as a kid and then as a children’s librarian. His books -- like “We Are All in the Dumps With Jack and Guy” – aren’t your run-of-the mill kids books, and approach larger societal problems like homelessness, AIDS, overcrowding, war, crime and pollution. Not all of his offerings are quite so complicated, and “Where The Wild Things Are,” probably (interpretation is always open to interpretation) falls in this category, which didn’t stop it from being a banned book when it was first published in 1963, and is still problematic nowadays.

     It will be interesting to see what director, Spike Jonze, will do with the short, original script. Here’s the preview.
