It was with sadness that I learned today of the passing of Maurice Sendak, the man who took the concept of Children's books to an entirely new level. His was a unique voice and vision and it will be missed.
I found an episode broadcast earlier today via NPR's Fresh Air program which features a remembrance of Sendak along with excerpts of several of the interviews he did for that program over the years.
If you haven't already heard it - here it is now.
Rest in Peace Maurice Sendak - you made surviving the day-to-day so much more bearable.
