Where the Wild Things on is counted among the best in children's books...and isn't this an awesome poster?

RIP Maurice Sendak “Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”
“Oh, please don’t go—we’ll eat you up—we love you so!” ― Maurice Sendak, by KARL JAMES MOUNTFORD
Such a cute drawing by the brilliant, sorely-missed illustrator Maurice Sendak. Sigh.
