Where The Wild Things Are

Apple Trailers has released a clip featuring the author Maurice Sendak explaining (amongst other things) why he has waited this long to allow his book to be made into a film.

Am I a grump?

The picture book is a masterpiece. Seemingly so simple, but in fact an amazingly sophisticated combination of text and images.

And it is a book for very young children - first and foremost. Max is a very small boy, much younger than the boy in the movie.

Oh - I shall give the benefit and hope for the best...
