Oh Man! I can't wait to see this!
Where The Wild Things Are was one of my favorite books as a kid. It seemed like most children's books were about happiness and light, but Sendak's slightly darker vision of childhood appealed to me a little more. Of course I was happy that in the end Max got to come home to a warm supper.
Here's a reading of the Sendak book if you're interested.
For what it's worth I know where at least four of the Wild Things are. They live with me.
