Reviews - What do customers think about Where the Wild Things Are?

Good Book  Jun 2, 2008
My kids at preschool love this story and they listen to it almost everyday before taking a nap. I bought the DVD as well and they love it also.
Fantastic!  May 30, 2008
My 2 year old absolutely loves reading this book. Some of the illustrations are dark and could be seen as scary to some, but my kid adores this book, and always runs to this one to pull it off the shelf!
Boring, pointless and unimaginative, illustrations don't make up for it.  May 16, 2008
With all the hype surrounding this book, I was excited to get this for my six year old daughter. She loves books, but neither she nor I could get the point of this. The uninspired writing goes nowhere. The plot(?) is strange and doesn't promote any appropriate values for children. Even the illustrations, while "classic", are only "classic" as they are easily recognizable; fact is, they're just not all that captivating.

My family was very disappointed in this book. If you must, take it out of a library, but I wouldn't waste my money.
Classic  May 15, 2008
One of the best kids books in my opinion. I got this and some 'monster slippers' as a gift for friends kids. Everyone should own a copy and read them (if not to their kids than to themselves!).
Great Children's Book  May 12, 2008
This book has been a 5 star publication since it's inception! I have never seen a child not love this book! It is definitely a winner!
