Beloved children's author Maurice Sendak passed away early Tuesday at the age of 83.  Sendak is best remembered for his books 'Where the Wild Things Are' and 'In the Night Kitchen.' He was the winner of both a Caldecott Medal and the National Medal of the Arts.  Check out his classic, Where the Wild Things Are.


Also try his newest book, Bumble-Ardy, the first book he had written as well as illustrated in 30 years. It's about a mischievous pig who reaches the age of nine without ever having a birthday party.
