Because: I deeply love this. It speaks so much about Sendak and his work, as well as the sweet innocence of childhood. I remember Mrs. Sandberg in the Walter C. Black elementary school library, where the walls were painted with versions of Sendak’s own wild things. 
I recommend listening to Sendak’s Fresh Air interviews, as well as with Stephen Colbert. They’re both very different types of interviews, the latter often heartrendingly frank and the former comedic, but both very revelatory.
