Remembering Maurice Sendak

As are so many friends and readers of his brilliant books, I too am remembering the king and genius of the picture book who has left for the land of the Wild Things. These photos bring back wonderful memories of the opening celebration of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, 10 years ago. Maurice graced us with his presence and the walls of the Museum with his glorious work. Thank you Maurice Sendak. We will miss you.
