OMG. Steven Colbert recently did a two-part interview with Maurice Sendak - the creator of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, many other classic picture books, and his latest BUMBLE-ARDY. Maurice has a reputation for being rather crotchety and he's had a rough time as he's gotten older, recently losing his life partner. So, to see him in this lighter moment is SO wonderful. But be warned - this is not for kids! Bravo to Steven!
To see the interviews in their original format at Colbert Nation go to Part 1 and Part 2, respectively.
