Maurice Sendak

 So sad to hear today that Maurice Sendak died.  My fondest memories of being little are  reading Little Bear with my mother.  The one thing I kept all these years from my childhood are my favorite books which are mostly either illustrated and or written by Maurice.  The man was simply a genius.  He changed the face of children's books, capturing their deep dark feelings.
