The Big Wild Rumpus


The Big Wild Rumpus is a nationwide campaign to celebrate the nation’s love of the classic Maurice Sendak book Where The Wild Things Are, which was first published in 1963.

For many children, it was be the perfect opportunity to introduce them to this book, which has entertained generations of young readers.

Author Maurice Sendak wrote and illustrated the book, which follows the exploits of Max, a young boy who “rages” against his mother who sends him to bed without any supper.
