Happy Birthday Maurice Sendak :)

This morning when I first googled something at work I noticed that there was a new Google Doodle. The doodles seem to get better and better each time (the one honoring Douglas Adams was amazing!) so I clicked onto it to have a play and saw that it was celebrating the 85th birthday of Maurice Sendak. Sendak, as most of you would know was the author and illustrator of the popular children’s book Where the Wild Things Are and another of my favourites as a child, In The Night Kitchen, as well as many others which he created from 1956 until his death in May of last year.

Maurice Sendak was an imaginative author that created unique, playful, and slightly creepy characters which have delighted generations of children, and hopefully will continue to delight generations to come. Good on Google for honoring him with this lovely doodle 🙂

If you’re seeing this after the fact here’s a video made of the Doodle in action:
