Well, I'm sure you've seen the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are so instead, I'll post the trailer (ok, it's a joke) for Spike Jonze's next childhood book adaptation...

Everybody Poops.

This is hilarious.

Yeah I remember the book, I remember that I would often go into the librarey and read books such at it. Been ages since I have read it, but I am definetly recognise the title and and artwork, just guessing the main character was Max right. Since no one has posted the trailer yet I will do it.

I remembered the art more than the story. My favorite page is the two-page spread showing the WILD THINGS marching with the kid in the lead! I really like that page! :)

I also remember that the WILD THINGS scared me! 8O

I used to love that book when I was a kid. I hope the movie doesn't ruin it.

The night kitchen was also a good book by Sendak.
