Unnecessary Sequel Honorable Mention: Where The Wild Things Aren't

The wise judges (Melangell and Phil) have spoken! Check in with Saints and Spinners tomorrow (Monday) as she unveils the results. She will announce the winners and I will post the illustrations here. In the meantime, there were a lot of great submissions for a sequel to Where The Wild Things Are, so I was compelled to make one:

Thanks to everyone for their creative suggestions, and stay tuned for more throughout the week!

Where the Wild Things Aren't: a loving commentary on boredom and conformity. -Greg W.

Where the Wild Things Aren't: After seeing his pediatrician and a child psychologist, max is prescribed medication for his anger management issues and night terrors. -Rocco Staino and Cynthia Sandler

Where the Wild Things Are Having a Bash: Max grows up and leaves home for Carousal State College--the biggest party school in the country. There, he meets other "wild things" and sails off with them into drunken oblivion every weekend. Of course, when he sobers up on Monday mornings, his Friday night dinners are always cold and moldy. -Elaine Magliaro

Where the Wild Things Aren't: Max grows up, becomes an accountant, marries the nice Jewish girl next door and spends the rest of his life in painful anonymity. -The Library Lady

Wild Things: A Tropical Theme Park: This picture book is a story about an important industry called tourism. In it, we welcome you to a tropical paradise reached by some pretty clever chronological sailing. See our monsters in their very specially designed habitat and later you can even watch a trained monster show while sipping on banana daiquiris as the sun sets over the ocean. Written and developed by Imperial Corporate, Inc. just for you. -Kate Coombs

Love your picture, Minh.

This book so reminds me of the adage about sometimes it's not so much what we say in a book, as what we don't say!

Congratulations to all of you unwild people.

And thanks Book Chook--I'm glad you liked the picture!
