This book holds so much sentiment and memories for folks in their twenties and early thirties - the people just starting to have families of their own. Who can forget the imaginative creatures and their habitat in the dark? Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of a young boy whose misbehaviour gets him sent to bed early by his mother. Once there, he imagines escaping to the world of the Wild Things, a place that, once visited, becomes a destination visited many times over.
