Wild Things Author Celebrated With Google Doodle

Caldecott Medal-winning author, Maurice Sendak, was born on this date in 1928. Polish-born Sendak was best known as the author of Where the Wild Things Are, which was first published in 1963 and has sold some 17 million copies since.

Sendak, who died in May of 2012, is celebrated today with a Google Doodle, making him one of a handful of authors to be honored in this way. 

While we’re talking about the Caldecott Medal, the 2013 winner was This Is Not My Hat, written and illustrated by Jon Klassen and pulished by Candlewick Press.
