Max puts on his wolf suit and makes all kinds of mischief. His mother calls him a "Wild Thing" and makes him go to bed without supper. Max is alone in his room and a forest begins to grow and he enters a different a world. There is the sea and he sets sail to an island to be with the other Wild Things, where he becomes King.I don't believe this book was ever read to me when I was a kid and this is my first time picking it up myself. When the movie came out on DVD, I saw it and really liked it. There is much more to the movie, of course, but this book is quite good. I really like the illustrations and the story itself is good as well.
