The Wild Things is about the confusions of a boy, Max, making his way in a world he can't control. His father is gone, his mother is spending time with a younger boyfriend, and his sister is becoming a teenager. At the same time, he finds himself capable of startling acts of wildness: he wears a wolf suit and he bites his mom.

During a fight at home, Max flees and runs away into the woods. He finds a boat there, jumps in, and ends up on the open sea, destination unknown. He lands on the island of the Wild Things, and soon he becomes their king. But things get complicated when Max realizes that the Wild Things want as much from him as he wants from them.

    " A lot like the movie, by Deve Eggers and Spike Jonz, which I loved. A good, fast read, but it would be made even better, if read to a small child, at bedtime. :D
    (I was never scared by the children's book like some people were. Eggers stays true to Sendak's vision.) "

    " "You think you wrecked this island? That you're that powerful? That you're the reason why everyone is sad or happy?" -Alexander (goat beast) to Max "
