Where The Wild Things Are
Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is an illustrated children's book. It describes through fantasy how a young boy named Max, who wears a distictive wolf suit, handles his anger at being sent to his room without supper.
The story also formed the basis of a children's opera by British composer Oliver Knussen. The first (incomplete) performance was in Brussels in 1980, with the first complete performance of the final version given by the Glyndebourne Touring Opera in London in 1984. This was followed the next year by its first U.S. performance in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The song Where The Wild Things Are by Metallica is based on the book.
