WWWW: RIP Maurice Sendak

There aren’t many books I remember reading in my childhood. The ones I do remember stand out for different reasons, but usually because of the illustrations. We lost not only a wonderful author, but a phenomenal illustrator on Tuesday. Maurice Sendak passed away at the age of 83, from complications after a recent stroke. His passing is the ending of a chapter in children’s literature history, and he will be missed.
