WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE cover image
It's an unsettling tale about a boy who deals with the hardships in life by throwing severe tantrums. Some child viewers immediately connected with Max, and saw how his dealing with the tantrums of Carol, one of the wild things, showed how anger and lashing out wasn't the way to deal with life's problems. For our young viewers, their favorite part was when the wild thing got angry and he punched the chicken's arm off and sand came out. But, the chicken didn't care. He just said, "Oh, that was my favorite arm!"
Maurice Sendak's book comes to life with lush cinematography and incredible puppetry. Things aren't going so well in young Max's life so he runs away, and his imagination takes him to the land where the wild things are. In this land, Max claims to be a king so he won't get eaten, and the wild things look to him for leadership. While being king can be lots of fun, Max learns that being responsible for everyone isn't so great, especially when his subjects get hurt by his own poor choices.
