There's something magical about children's books. It's such an important and influencial part of growing up that no kid should be left without. One of our favourite books growing up was WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. A book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak (1928 - 2012)... we're obsessed with his crazy, quirky and other-worldly artwork.
A story of only 338 words, it follows the main character Max who turns his bedroom into an imaginary jungle after being sent to bed without his dinner. Max becomes king of the Wild Things, playing and dancing with his new buddies... soon returning back to his room where he finds a nice hot dinner waiting for him.
We also found and love a brand called Leg Avenue who make adorable little King Max costumes. So if your tiny monster is a fan of the story, he or she now has the perfect Halloween costume sorted.
