i enjoy reading your books to my children. Thanks for that.

the Spike Jonze movie put me to sleep though. Maybe i will re-watch it in your honor.

RIP

RIP dud. Huge inspiration to me as a wee lad, and as an adult possible my favorite old gay curmudgeon.

I liked the movie ok. It wasn't perfect, but there was enough good about it for me.

I heard an interview with him when the movie came out. From what I remember, he didn't sound like the happy happy joy joy type. He said something like, he didn't care if children were scared by his books, life is scary or something. I liked him for that.

R.I.P. At least he got to see and benefit from the movie and not get ripped off after he guessed it.

"Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children's letters sometimes very hastily but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, 'Dear Jim: I loved your card.' Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, 'Jim loved your card so much he ate it.' That to me was one of the highest compliments I've ever received. He didn't care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it."

This was one of my favorite childhood mom-rock jams: [youtu.be]
