Description
"It seems entirely fitting that Maurice Sendak was born on the same day that Mickey Mouse first made his cartoon debut--June 10, 1928. Sendak was crazy about cartoons and comic books, and at twelve, after seeing Disney's Fantasia, he decided that he was going to become an illustrator. His love of childrens books began early: often sick and confined to bed, little Maurice read and read and read. Though many of his own stories were light and funny, the most important ones--Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There--dealt with anger, jealousy, abandonment, content that had never before been the subject of picture books. As well as covering career highlights, this easy to read, illustrated biography also describes the personal life of this genius. Who Was Maurice Sendak is perfect for kids wild about one of the most influential children's book artists of the twentieth century!"--,Provided by publisher.

Description
Maurice Sendak learned very early in life that life was not easy and through his books he tried to expose children to the not so perfect life parents often want to present to their children in order to protect them, but in reality their children are unprepared for the realities of life...there are frightening things to deal with, there is war, people do get sick, people do die. As he focuses in on events in history that affected his thinking, the Nazi Holocaust and the kidnapping and murder of the Lindbergh baby he learns early in life that although there is joy there is also much horror, sadness and heartbreak in this world.
