I knew the book “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak from when I was younger. I was excited when the movie came out and loved it. I found it so touching, so beautiful. This book is the companion to the movie (Sendak and Eggers also wrote the screenplay) and just as touching. Maybe even more so, because now we really are in the head of Max, and can see his struggles and feelings. A great read, four out of five stars.
