RIP Maurice Sendak

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Art, Books, Children, People

I love the work of Maurice Sendak. I don’t agree with everything he says about what young children need to be exposed to, but that’s something else. He was a great writer, thinker, teacher, artist and human being. And who better to illustrate his last interview with NPR’s Terry Gross than Christoph Niemann? Beautiful. I’m sorry Terry Gross couldn’t reciprocate the love he gave her, but that’s how it is. We pass like ships in the night…
