He was a great children's book writer and very funny. Colbert interviewed him and just sent him off on his show.
"Where the Wild Things Are"
in the night kitchen was better
He was great on Fresh Air with Terri Gross.
BTW, any Chicken Soup with Rice fans? I loved that book as a kid
I grew up on Chicken Soup with Rice, now I read it to my son.
Have to say Pierre was my favorite. "I don't care said Pierre, but Pierre did care".
Colbert at his finest with a great "interview". I both laughed and cried the entire segment. Sendak's ornery demeanor and ability to smack Colbert back made it such a classic moment. RIP, Maurice. Thanks for the fantastic books.
We have to ban writing. Too many writers have died.
for the past 5 years...weird dude. But that might have been obvious from his writing. My whole town is in mourning...we're now down to just one "famous" person..Giancarlo Esposito.
I was just about to post this. This is classic.
Maurice Sendak was definitely a unique character. RIP.
Given my pic, I figured I should add that I hope he has
Sailed off through night and day,
And in and out of weeks,
And almost over a year...
