Where the wild things are

How incredibly exciting. Surely you remember Where the wild things are, one of the most famous children's books, written by Maurice Sendak and first published in 1963. For any who need a refresher, the story tells of the magical world the boy returns to after being punished and sent to bed without dinner. I'm impressed with how closely the characters look to the illustrations. But, curious to see how Spike Jonze depicts Max's make-believe forest where his "ferocious wild creatures crown him as their ruler".
I'm positive I'll walk away in wonderment.
