Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are got me started reading (and loving) fantasy literature.

Author and illustrator Maurice Sendak passed away last year, but tomorrow would have been his 85th birthday. In his honor, Google has posted an animated Doodle running through some of Sendak’s classic books.

The Doodle has already appeared on New Zealand’s Google, and I expect the rest of us will be seeing it on our home Google pages as June 10th comes upon us. The animation takes us through Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, and Sendak’s 2011 book Bumble-Ardy. Happy Birthday, Mr. Sendak.
