Maurice Sendak

"Where the Wild Things are, "by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak,  was originally published by Harper & Row. The book has been adapted into other media several times, including an animated short, a 1980 opera, and, in 2009, a live-action feature film adaptation directed by Spike Jonze.

Below is the animated version of the story, which uses the original pictures from the book. I actually prefer this to the film, not least because its only a few minutes long!
