Where the Wild Things Are, the 1964 Caldecott winner, is a ten-sentence story about Max, a boy who is angry after being sent to his room without supper. Max imagines a forest of monsters and travels to their land where he becomes the king of the wild things. The text is simple, but the themes of imagination, anger and consequences are easy to understand, and the larger than life Wild Things bring the story to life.
