Happy birthday, Maurice Sendak
It is the birthday of beloved children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak (1928) whose popular Where the Wild Things Are (1963) has delighted children for decades. With 19 million copies in print, it was a runaway bestseller. Sendak died last year from a stroke. An animated Google doodle is dedicated to Sendak, who would have been 85 today. Enjoy!
