Remembering Maurice Sendak

If your childhood (or were involved in anyone else’s childhood) at any time over the past 45 years, you know who Maurice Sendak is.  Chances are his stories and illustrations have inspired your dreams, leant expression to your hopes and fears, or, at the very least, provided you with a very entertaining story to grow with and share.

Sendak passed away at age 83 after suffering a stroke.  Today is a sad day in the world of books, so in honor of his memory, I am compiling a list of some of the stories, obituaries, and opinion pieces from the web today.  His stories will definitely carry on and, without a doubt, our great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren will all still know his name.

Oh, please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so!
