Maurice Sendak - An Awesome Dude

Maurice Sendak - children's book author and fabulous curmudgeon - passed today from complications after a recent stroke. I'm sure I join hundreds of other bloggers, thousands of other readers whose lives were touched by Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen - just to name a couple of his fantastically illustrated and mind-bending stories.

Some tidbits for those of us who'd like to spend the day remembering:
