Thanks, Maurice by Bob Staake - The New York Times Tribute to Maurice Sendak

TOMI UNGERER . For Maurice: I visited Maurice last summer. It was joy and bliss under the pine trees. Cajoling the past and blasting the present — both roaring, eyes weepy, giving our emotions a free range of expressions. Maurice is now where the wild things are.

Maurice Sendak tribute by Joe Hunter

In the Dumps, Maus, Where the Wild Things Are, Art Spiegelman and Maurice Sendak, September 27 1993, The New Yorker.

There’d be these really dense bushes with God-knows-what behind them and it was terrifying, but then there’d be a moon, all nicely framed in a hole in the scenery, as if it knew exactly where you were standing and had gotten into position for you, and it wasn’t as scary then.
