    Maurice Sendak Google Doodle - where the wild things are

    Where the Wild Things Are Google Doodle - one of my favourite books as a kid:



    Google honors Maurice Sendak with an nice animated doodle. He was born on June 10, 1928 -- 85 years ago. Maurice Bernard Sendak was an American illustrator and writer of children's books. He is best known for his book „Where the Wild Things Are", first published in 1963. The book's depictions of fanged monsters concerned some parents, as his characters were somewhat grotesque in appearance. More about Sendak: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_...

    The doodle shows an very creative „walk around the world". Rotating stage-layers includes some main characters of Sendaks illustrations. More about this doodle: http://www.tagseoblog.de/die-welt-des...

    Sendak mentioned in a September 2008 that he was gay. He lived with his partner, Dr. Eugene Glynn, for 50 years. But an earlier coming-out was not possible because f his children-book career.

    Sendak died on May 8, 2012. Happy Birthday Maurice Sendak.
