Donde viven los Monstruos - Spanish version of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
A carefully translated version of the perennially popular 1964 Caldecott Medal winner. The playful and whimsical style of the original text is maintained from start to finish from the night mischievous Max dons a wolf's suit to his landing in the place where the wild things roam, from his enthronement as King of these temperamental and pudgy beasts to his renunciation as leader for a steaming bowl of home cooking. Still an engaging fantasy after more than three decades, this extraordinary picture book strikes at the very essence of childhood urges for unlimited freedom without losing the security of home. A timeless beauty of a classic with the most imaginative of monster engravings. Perfect for reading aloud in this finely accomplished Spanish version. Paperback, 48 pages.
