If you haven’t had a chance to go to the google home page too see their reverential tribute to the legendary artist, Maurice Sendak, whose medium of choice was childrens’ literature, you really should check it out. Must’ve read “In The Night Kitchen” and “Where the Wild Things Are” to thousands of kids over the years. I’m a big fan.
Sendak
From Wikipedia: Maurice Bernard Sendak (/ˈsɛndæk/; June 10, 1928 – May 8, 2012) was an American illustrator and writer of children’s books. He became widely known for his book Where the Wild Things Are, first published in 1963.[1] Born to Jewish-Polish parents, his childhood was affected by the death of many of his family members during the Holocaust. Besides Where the Wild Things Are, Sendak also wrote works such as In the Night Kitchen and Outside Over There, and illustrated Little Bear.
Sendak died in 2012 after suffering a stroke.
