No kind of about it, it is truly adorable.

Maurice and a Wild Thing, yes?

Roger Sutton said...

Yes--I think what I love is the supremely multi-numinous expression on Sendak's face.

Is it just me, or does Maurice look really good? Spry even?

JFM said...

Sweet. Who took the photo? I like the way one horn seems to be growing out of Sendak's head.

Heh. He's a wild thing too.

Made me think of the little animation Jon Agee fixed up for the Reading Reptile bookstore. Here's the link:

Sendak is numerously luminously numinous but I'm not seeing what you see in the expression. It looks more to me like someone has crazy glued his sideburn to a wild thing and he is finding it vaguely perturbing. Still, we should all look so good crazy glued to a wild thing.

And, might I add, Mr. Sendak, that Max's dinner isn't the only thing that is still hot.

Looks to me like a gentleman farmer posing with his cash cow.
