Where The Wild Things Are
Where The Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are is about a little boy named Max who is very naughty.

He was sent to bed without supper because he threatened to eat his mom up. Now, that is a very naughty boy.

When he was in his room, the hyperactive kid can’t keep still and imagined himself transported into another world where he meets big monsters with terrible teeth, terrible roars, and terrible eyes. But Max is not one to be intimidated. He soon becomes king of the all the wild things and started the most riotous adventure of all.

This book is brilliant with it’s unique and iconic fluffy monsters that make you look twice. The story of Max is one that children could relate to and adults could also what with naughty children running about and chasing the dog with forks. It’s fun yet dark and wild as the title suggest. It lets imagination to set loose, unbounded and unleashed.

Where The Wild Thing Are will surely imbue an adventurous and creative mind to run wild.And most importantly, it teaches that even how far one will go, the best place in the world is still right beside someone who loves you best of all.

A highly recommended read-aloud book during the daytime. I believe books with monsters are better read when the sun is shining and never be read as bedtime stories. Monsters are just well, scary even when they’re fluffy and funny-looking. They make it hard to sleep at night. Just my two cents. *wink

    I agree that stories with monsters should really be read during the day and not during bedtime. Nice review! I got quite interested about the adventures that Max did in the story. Great thanks!

      I know someone will surely agree with me on that. Haha! I am just a scaredy-cat at night. But I don’t know about you of course!
