Maurice Sendak, the children’s author and illustrator best known for the 1963 classic “Where the Wild Things Are,” died Tuesday in Danbury, Conn., reportedly of complications from a stroke.
This is completely personal but I find it necessary to add that I moved house over the past week and along with me came my Where the Wild Things Are stuffed animals - the only stuffed animals I still own and I’m 42. Sendak was totally baller, yo. 
He was 83.
