Essay Fiesta Salutes Maurice Sendak

What child of the latter part of the 20th century was not touched in some way by the words of Maurice Sendak? The prolific illustrator and author penned such perennial classics as Where the Wild Things Are and Chicken Soup with Rice, passed away today at the age of 83.

Maurice Sendak

Essay Fiesta thinks this is a perfect time to reflect on our favorite authors of our childhood and thank them for their contributions to the craft. Without pioneers like Sendak, Silverstein and Seuss, our lives would be a little less colorful, a little less creative. It was authors like these that lit that passion for us to write by showing us just how much words can invigorate and inspire.

So hats off to you Maurice. Let’s hope you’re enjoying a wild rumpus somewhere in the great beyond.
