Multiple Wild Things

A couple of Where the Wild Things snippets tonight. First, check out this article from USA Today on the creation of the upcoming movie. The bit that makes me happiest? When Spike Jonze says:
"My intention was to be true to how it felt to be 9 years old. Maurice's whole thing is to be honest. You can say anything to kids as long as you are respectful and not pandering."
Perfect. And definitely don't miss the photos.

The second bit of news is cake-related. I'm a fan of a blog called Cake Wrecks, and a few weeks back, she featured a Where the Wild Things Are cake in her regular Sunday Sweets post. There was some discussion of how the baker did it, but however it was accomplished, it looks a-maz-ing.

And yummy.

I *love* Where the Wild Things Are...seriously it may be my all time favorite children's book ever. This year it is going to be our featured book for Children's Book Week.
