‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Party

‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Party

I’ve always ‘had a thing’ for the children’s author Maurice Sendak. I remember choosing him for an assignment when I was at Teachers Training College. There is something about the ‘wild rumpus’, ‘king of all kings’ and not to forget nudey Mickey in the ‘Night Kitchen’. Maurice Sendak passed away in 2012 leaving us with fabulous books like Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. He also leaves us with a beautiful quote from one of his last interviews; “I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more.” Another great quote from Sendak and the Wild Things is, ‘I’ll eat you up I love you so,” and when I saw this awesome party from Christchurch mum Jen I wanted to eat it up I loved it so!
