RIP Maurice Sendak

I loved loved LOVED this book as a kid. He became one of my favourite artists. He will be missed.

Where I use to read the book, on the dining room floor... This is also possibly why the pages got turned. The book did get kicked around a bit, and dragged, and stuffed into backpacks. And my two favourite drawings/pages. 

One of my favourite uncles was named Max (died when I was about 4 years old), and the other loved to sail (died when I was 6 years old) so this page always meant something special to me. As a kid I felt like both uncles were represented and remembered in this page. 

What kid didn't like swinging in the trees...
