Beloved children’s book author Maurice Sendak once seriously thought about trying to assassinate Bush and Cheney
Maurice Sendak was an amazing person, an amazing storyteller and illustrator. But he also had a bit of a temper and could sometimes be a bit irrational. As revealed in an interview right before his passing, Sendak said that he once seriously considered how he might be able to assassinate both George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
Maurice Sendak, children’s author and illustrator, creator of such wonderful classics as Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen and Chicken Soup with Rice, died today at the age of 83. Such a wonderful man, such a wonderful mind and talent. He will be absolutely missed.
In what could have been one of the most amazing collaborations ever, illustrator Maurice Sendak, whom you may remember did Where the Wild Things Are among many other wonderful things, almost had the chance to illustrate The Hobbit, until chance and human error screwed it all up.
