‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Author Maurice Sendak — Dead at 83 |

It’s a terrible day for terrible creatures … ’cause the man who wrote the children’s classic, “Where the Wild Things Are” has died.

Maurice Sendak — who not only wrote the book but ALSO drew the iconic “Wild Things” images — passed away early this morning at a hospital in Connecticut after suffering a stroke on Friday.

“Where the Wild Things Are” was first published in 1963 … and was adapted into a major motion picture in 2009 … the same year President Obama read the book to children at the White House Easter Egg Roll.
