Maurice Sendak - author and illustrator

Maurice Sendak, the author of Where the Wild Things Are (and many other wonderful books) has died this week.  To celebrate his work - and to remind you of how great his books are - here is a link to his most famous book, read by Gwendolyn Sandford.  Some of you will have seen the movie, too!

As a footnote for all the Andy Griffiths lovers out there...last June, I posted a blog link to an Andy video of him reading to his cat.  Can you figure out how to find a previous post and watch the video? (Hint: check the blog archive on the bottom right.....)
