A very Happy Birthday to Maurice Sendak- author of the oh so popular Where the Wild Things Are. However, if this particular masterpiece is the extent of your knowledge regarding his works it might interest you to know that he is in fact the author of a highly recognized and controversially ‘banned book’ entitled In the Night Kitchen.
I strongly encourage all readers (which should be everyone) to take a closer look into the life and deeper controversial messages of the beloved author of Where the Wild Things Are- if only to satisfy a level of intrigue.
You might learn something you hadn’t yet known- and find it quite interesting and scandalous along the way =)
