it was amazing

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Rose

The imaginative adventure Max has is symbolic of his anger at his mother and his want to get away to a world where he doesn’t have to answer to anyone. When he is made king of the Wild Things he is now in charge and emulates his mother by repeating her actions, by sending the creatures off to bed without supper, typical behavior of a child mimicking their parents behavior. After Max grows tired of being king and grows lonely is his imaginary world, he quickly returns to what he knows best.

The moral of this story is no matter how upset you get with the ones you love, there is nothing like family and there’s no place like home.

This book should be a must-have for every child’s library or an adult like myself that grew up loving the story and wanted it for my collection.
