'Where the Wild Things Are' author Maurice Sendak’s 85th birthday celebrated by Google
Maurice Sendak’s 85th birthday was celebrated with an animated Google doodle this Monday. The celebrated children’s book author, who died last May, was born June 10, 1928.

The animation is a relatively simple one by Google doodle standards — users click a small play button below Max, the protagonist from Sendak’s most famous work, Where The Wild Things Are, and the boy king starts walking around the world, soon followed by his Monster subjects.

Maurice Sendak, the wildly talented, often cantankerous children’s book author and illustrator of Where The Wild Things Are, has died. He was 83 years old.

“I refuse to lie to children,” Sendak told The Guardian in an interview last year. “I refuse to cater to the bullshit of innocence.” (Photos: AP)
