    Where the Wild Things are is a story about a boy's strange imagination. Max is a little naughty and he gets sent to bed without his supper but he is also very imaginative. He wears a white creature suit. Max creates an imaginary land with monsters where he does crazy things. I would recommend this story to kids who may have misbehaved at one point in their lives but they also are good at imagining fun things.

      I like it because something silly happens. The silly part is actually where a forest grew in Max's room. It was a fun book for kids. This book is good for all ages - little kids, big kids, and grownup kids.😄 😍
