Day 79: Max (Where the Wild Things Are)

Max is the protagonist of the children's picture book "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. The book is about the imaginary adventures of Max, a young boy who is punished for "making mischief" by being sent to his room without supper. Max wears a distinctive wolf suit during his adventures and encounters various mythical creatures, the wild things. Although just ten sentences long, the book is generally regarded as a classic of American illustrated children's literature.

Written in 1963, it was awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1964.
