June 10, 2013 § 1 Comment
Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, Outside Over There, My Brother’s Book and so many, many more, would have been 85 today. He died last May from complications from a stroke. In honor of his birthday, Google threw him a Doodle party. Make sure to check out the animation on Google’s home page today, but here are some screen shots to share the fun:
From In the Night Kitchen, 1970. For the old-school animated short directed by Gene Deitch and narrated by Peter Shickele, click here.
From Bumble-ardy, 2011. To hear Sendak’s beautiful radio interview with Terry Gross about Bumble-ardy, birthdays, and readiness for death, click here.
