For anyone who may not be familiar with the book, it tells the story of Max, who one evening plays around his home, in a wolf costume "making mischief" by chasing the dog with a fork and growling at his mother. His mother sends him to bed without supper as a punishment. In his room, a mysterious, wild forest grows out of his very active imagination, and Max journeys to the land of the Wild Things. The Wild Things are fearsome-looking monsters, but Max conquers them "by staring into their yellow eyes without blinking once", and becomes "the King of all Wild Things". However, he soon finds himself lonely and homesick, and he returns home to his bedroom, where he finds his supper waiting for him, still hot.
The cinematic release, based on this book, will be in the middle of October. Today, over on the Destineers blog, “wild things” from the fantastic realm are being featured. As always, you can find more about these fantastical beings in The Destineers Journal of Fantasy Nations and posted in the classrooms in The Cybrarie. I hope you’ll take a moment to stop by and explore some of the more wild fantastical beings for yourself.
