I met him once, talking to a small group of students when I was at Simmons College studying to become a librarian. Such a funny guy! I still remember the stories he told us.
Where the Wild Things Are was my very first "challenged" book as a young librarian. I was innocent and inexperienced, but I was not about to let that book be removed from my library.
My own children grew up with his illustrations framed in every room of our house! We are quite fond of Mr. Rabbit. Not to mention Little Bear. I could go on forever. A great loss to the book world.
