Maurice Sendak was indisputably America's greatest creator of illustrated books for children, and the surreal, anarchic humour of Where the Wild Things Are has charmed generations. Among those whose imaginations have been shaped by Sendak's vision of monsters and mayhem is Gregory Maguire the bestselling author of Wicked. In this brilliant homage, lavishly illustrated with Sendak's own magical artwork, he explores the master's life and art, his influences - from Blake to Disney - and the deep well-springs of his profoundly original talent. Off-mint.
