We have lost one of the Great Masters today; Maurice Sendak has died. Other people are writing more eloquently than I can of the playfulness and profundity of his work. All I can say is I felt a pang of loss when I heard the news and when I told Bill so did he.
And so it was on with last year's World Book Day Max costume and time for a spontaneous family bedtime wild rumpus.
Hope you're enjoying one of your own somewhere Maurice; the true King of all Wild Things.
