After watching Where the Wild Things Are, I just had to make a little Carol mini sculpture for my wife.
I loved the book as a child, and I was amazed to find the movie evoking the same feelings that I had about the book as a youngster. It was a strange, dark book, actually. The characters where love-able and scary at the same time. They were unpredictable, like they could turn on you and eat you any time.
If I have it right, Where the Wild Things Are was the book that set a new format for children's picture books and as an illustrator it will always be a book that I hold in the highest regard.
That being said, I really should get a copy...
