Format: Paperback
I remember this book as the first that truly transported me into its pages. It is poetically written, easy for a child to follow, and sparks the imagination. I was near tears with excitement when I was able to read it to my children for the first time. I was seven again as I watched their eyes light up for a timeless story of a boy's unstoppable imagination, a "wild rumpus" with deferential monsters, and an undercurrent of a mother's love for her little wild thing. Well-illustrated, the pictures are fun, frightening, and fantastic. A must-read for your little wild things!

My daughter has books spilling off her book shelf because she has so many. This is the one she chooses every night for our story time. She is just turning 3 and we have a lot of fun reading it together. I always leave the last word in every sentence for her to say because she knows the story by heart now. I fondly remember this book as a child and it's nice to see my daughter loving it as much as I did.
The illustrations are unique and the story is full of imagination! Love it! Need I say more?!

Format: Paperback
I somehow missed this book when my children were little, but I've seen it recommended so often on Amazon.com that I finally decided to buy it ... 43 years after it was written!

I notice it's still among the best-sellers of children's books, so that gives me another clue of how great it is. Now, that's staying power!

To make a long story short, I finally had the joy of reading it and have passed it on to my grandchildren. It's a wonderful, imaginative story. I enjoyed Sendak's style; his streams of consciousness made for smooth reading. And I can tell my grandkids are enjoying it, too. Johnny's reading it now, and he has the broadest smile on his face! (Grandmother's note: His smile lights up the room, warming my heart and making me extra glad I finally broke down and purchased this book.)

Senak is a masterful writer who knows the child's mind and heart. The illustrations are magical.

My son is 2 and just loves this book. He recites portions of it over and over again. It really captures his imagination and will initate hours of talk about "monsters". An absolute hit in our house!

It's a classic book, teaching both independence, creativity and even moderation. A permanent fixture on the home library shelf and definitely a classic everyone should read at least once.

I loved this book as a child growing up. Great story with a message. I hope Maurice's legacy lives on for a long time.
