Maurice Sendak Dead at 83

The author of one of my favorite childhood books is dead. Maurice Sendak gave us the ever-popular Where The Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. He had been hospitalized since Friday after suffering from a stroke. He passed early this morning.

WTWTA was made into a disappointingly mediocre and boring movie a few years back (what the hell happened, Spike Jonze?!). Disney had also attempted an animated short based on the book-- it was to be one of their first forays into 3D animation:

According to the New York Times, his latest book called "My Brother's Book" will be released in February 2013.

He will be missed.
