One night Max got overly rambunctious. His mother called him a wild thing and sent him to his room without any supper. That didn't bother Max because he had a wild imagination (and maybe amazing dreams). His room became a jungle and he set off to another land where all kinds of monsters - wild things - awaited him. When he gets back ... well, it's a great ending. This is a wildly fantastical story with illustrations to match.

A story that captures imagination in its purest form and leaves you wondering: at what point did the impractical fade from our collective reality?

I didn't read this as a child, but picked it up as it was on this list of books! It wasn't too bad at all, the story is short but sweet and the artwork is brilliant!

Easily one of the greatest children's books ever written. Fun, imaginative, and with a good moral. My daughters reading journey began here, just like it did for me.
