Been meaning to dress up your Kindle? This post has you covered.
The Google homepage turned into a heartfelt tribute to the late creator of Where the Wild Things Are. Today would have been Sendak’s 85th birthday.

Today’s a good day to celebrate how important children’s books are to kids growing up. What book helped shape you and still sticks with you today?
This is beyond priceless. From today’s White House Easter Egg Roll, here’s the President, Michelle Obama and Bo reading the Maurice Sendak classic to children.
“Theres a bear strung up, I assume murdered; I don’t know, there’s a stool.” [Ed. note: This has been around before, but it’s a slow buzz day and it’s fantastic, so why not treat yourself?]
Old people using inhalants seems to be a thing this week! Here’s the conclusion of Stephen Colbert’s highly entertaining interview with “Where The Wild Things Are” author Maurice Sendak, during which the curmudgeonly legend reviews Colbert’s new children’s book, “I Am A Pole (And So Can You),” before teaching him how to illustrate… while high on markers.
Star Wars Day might be over but the amazing homages just keep flowing in. What do you mean you only did one page of this, James Hance? This mash-up must be turned into a fully fledged children’s novel. View Image ›
Google and The Arcade Fire made this nice interactive video thing for you to get all nostalgic with. It is basically the first scene of Where The Wild Things Are remade with your childhood home and lots of browser windows. (Google Chrome required. Thanks, PDH!)
Just Dance! [Ed Note: Is this cute or just frightening? I can’t really tell anymore with Lady GaGa-related media.] View Image ›
Some expert super sleuthing has finally uncovered the identity of the super hot “Where the Wild Things Are” t-shirt girl.
Just because they’re both named Spike doesn’t mean they both make the same kind of movies. View Image ›
Someone mashed up ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ with ‘Girls Gone Wild’, creating something I’m not sure I feel OK watching. Wordplay wise, this makes sense. Otherwise? Nope. Watch Video ›
A unique look into what’s really going on in the heads of young boys, as only Spike Jonze and Joe Francis could imagine it. Watch Video ›
Including wild strippers into the trailer STILL makes this movie seem triumphant. Watch Video ›
The season’s most appropriate pumpkin imagery. View Image ›
This recut Gremlins trailer proves that putting Arcade Fire under anything instantly makes it an indie smash hit. Watch Video ›
Dave Eggers has written an adaptation of a movie adaptation of a children’s book: Where The Wild Things Are. If you’re already wigging about buying a Max body suit, then all you literary furries can also buy a book encased in fuzz. View Image ›
If Van Gogh liked Maurice Sendak, he would’ve painted this. Also, WANT. View Image ›
Everyone’s reading the Spike Jonze profile from the coming weekend’s Times Magazine, so you probably should, too. My favorite part of this article so far is the caption that helpfully clarifies, “Jonze is the one without a wolf suit.”
Claire made these for her roommate as a farewell present. Pretty sure the entire internet would be willing to fill that open room. View Image ›
“All Is Love,” the first song from Karen O’s Where The Wild Things Are soundtrack, is streaming on MySpace. It features whistling, kids singing, and a spelling lesson, so: it’s pretty great.
A group blog about Where The Wild Things Are (movie version) and all the artists who’ve been a part of the filmmaking process.
The theatrical trailer for Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are dropped yesterday (the earlier version was just a teaser), and we’re even more excited to see this film when it opens. (via Flavorwire) Watch Video ›
The famously misanthropic author behind the book seems visibly enthusiastic about Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers’s predictably twee, luscious film adaptation set to open this fall. Not that we weren’t going to see it, but when Maurice Sendak gives something the ok, it goes to the top of the list. Watch Video ›
