WTWTA was a major part of my childhood. I recall seeing a documentary on Sendak around the time of the movie, which revealed he had a dark side, suffered from depression and a lot of demons to work through.

Goodnight, Mr Sendak.

Ah that's too bad.  That book was pretty good and that movie based on it was pretty interesting.  RIP Mister Sendak.

We live in quite an interesting age. You can tell someone's sexual orientation and level of education from just their interests.
