Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak


The story follows a young boy, Max who dresses in a wolf costume, much to the dismay of his family. After being sent to bed without his supper, Max's room is transformed into a jungle where wild beasts roam. After managing to intimidate the beasts, he enjoys playing with his new subjects. Eventually, he gets lonely and decides to return home where a hot supper is waiting for him.
