A while ago, Betsy Bird (she of the always ingenious ideas), put celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Where the Wild Things Are by putting a call out for people to reimagine Sendak classics in the style of other illustrators.
I jumped on it right away with this Crockett Johnson version of Where the Wild Things Are because (1) I thought it was a really nice fit of two great books, and (2) these were illustrations I could handle. CLICK HERE for the full post with lots of great art... including another Purple Crayon inspired drawing made by a 7 year old. (Note: If I were the least bit uncomfortable with having the same idea as a 7 year old, I wouldn't have this blog about children's books. In fact, I consider it a point of pride.)
