President Obama goes full monster face while reading Where The Wild Things Are to a group of children during the annual White House Egg Roll. Wonderful.
Author and illustrator Maurice Sendak passed away last year, but tomorrow would have been his 85th birthday. In his honor, Google has posted an animated Doodle running through some of Sendak's classic books.
Few people know of William Shatner's personal campaign to get kids interested in reading. The actor read the classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are to a group of kids at the recent Denver Comic Con; if he embellished the tale a bit, what of it? A book is merely a doorway to imagination, while Shatner's…
When it comes to wild things in the woods, Max has nothing on Princess Mononoke. In this sweet mashup by Justin Hillgrove, the various spirits and creatures from Studio Ghibli's films pay tribute to San, the wildest of them all.
One of the best things about becoming a parent is getting to dress your kids up as chest-bursting, brain-devouring zombies (or, provided you've raised them as good little Browncoats and Whovians, getting to see them choose an awesome costume all on their own).

We rounded up all of Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are clips to prep for Friday's wild rumpus. Sit back and soak in the intriguing mix of child and monster, while Carol introduces us all to his monster family.
In this week's net-neutral iPhone app roundup: Wild Things, physics games, Photoshop!, Twitter again (but that's ok!), horse music, human music, and much, much more.
It's turning out to be the year of the Furry. There's cat people, wild things, a fox in a suit. Here's the complete list of this year's furry people, ranked by sexiness.
When Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers set about adapting Where The Wild Things Are into a movie, Maurice Sendak encouraged them to take a free hand and change stuff. But Eggers and Jonze tell us one change made Sendak nervous.
I've been supremely cautious about getting excited about Spike Jonze's Wild Things film because whenever I get excited about a piece of indy pop culture, crap like this happens. Witness badvertising at its height: a man-child suit, costing just $610.
