- It’s by Dave Eggers.
- Remember the line “I’ll eat you up, I love you so!” Well, we get to see what that really means in the book.
- The monsters all talk like adults, but they have no judgment. That’s either really interesting, or a terrifying commentary on adults.
- Eggers does a masterful job of maintaining the tone of the original Where the Wild Things Are, in a satisfying full-length novel.
- Reading it lets you crawl into the mind of an 8 year old boy and live vicariously for a while. Reminds me of why I’m glad I’m not still eight years old, and why I sometimes wish I were eight years old.
- There are hundreds of tiny cats where the wild things live.
- Max’s crazy neighbor.
