Where the Wild Things Are Socks
For Wild Things no matter what his or her age. One sock features our hero Max and the other features the other wild thing on this pair of socks based on Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are; charcoal gray background, white creatures, turquoise accents, and a golden crown for Max, of course. On the bottom of each sock is the pivotal line from the book, “We’ll eat you up we love you so.”
Published in 1963, this winner of the Caldecott Medal has been credited with ushering in the modern age of the picture book; Time magazine commented that “[w]hat makes Sendak's book so compelling is its grounding effect: Max has a tantrum and in a flight of fancy visits his wild side, but he is pulled back by a belief in parental love to a supper 'still hot,' balancing the seesaw of fear and comfort.”
