Wolf Suit

Just finished reading Where the Wild Things Are to my son.

Love the way it opens: "The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another..."

Perfect considering my boy wore a metaphorical wolf suit all day today.

This book has it all: poetry, characterization, the heroic quest. It's one of my favourite stories because it gives children mastery over that which makes them feel powerless, like monsters...and parents.

Then, there's the imagination.

he sailed off through night and day...

Can't wait to see the film.
