If a psychologist said to me, "Think of the first thing that comes to mind when I say the words 'children's book'," THIS book is what would pop into my mind. I had a copy as a child and it was well-loved. It is now well-loved by my daughter. Wonderful illustrations, poetry-type storytelling, and puts to rest the notion that monsters are to be feared.

This is one of the best children's picture books ever! Poor Max! He gets sent to his room without his supper for being too wild and mischievous. While he is in his room he lets his imagination take him through time to another world, where he is hailed king of all wild things until the smell of his supper waiting for him lures him back to his room. I was already a parent when I first read this book and I remember thinking, "What?" "Send my boy to his room without supper?" "Never!" Max did get his supper though, and it was still hot! Great book! Wonderful illustrations! I recommend you read it or I'll eat you up!

Classic book. My toddler loves it and always brings it for me to read to him. Our favorite part is the wild rumpus. We love it!

This is still one of the greatest books. I remembered reading it several times in elementary school and when I saw there was a movie coming out, I was ecstatic. I had to get the book just for the sake of nostalgia.
