Wild Things on Film

Released tomorrow: Let the wild rumpus begin anew as Maurice Sendak’s beloved classic comes to rich, animated life with Where the Wild Things Are…and 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak. The faithfully adapted title tale – one of the classics of children’s literature — headlines the repackaged and refreshed DVD from Scholastic Storybook Treasures™. The DVD, which also includes six animated Sendak tales, a rare, behind-the-scenes interview with the author entitled “Getting to Know Maurice Sendak”, the Spanish language version of “Where the Wild Things Are”, and Special Edition stickers is available to add to your home entertainment library.

The title tale, which has sold millions of copies since it was originally published in 1963, is familiar to children — and adults — of all ages. Regarded as a landmark children’s classic, it’s the wildly imaginative story of Max, a young boy who misbehaves and is sent to his room without supper. There, he lets his imagination take him to a faraway place where, after donning a distinctive wolf costume, he befriends the strange, mythical creatures who inhabit the island. But, after a “wild rumpus” Max decides it’s time to head back home, “where someone loved him best of all.”

With the new read-along function on “Where the Wild Things Are,” children will delight in following the narration in this beautifully animated version of Max’s adventures. Other Sendak tales, on the DVD include “Pierre,” “One Was Johnny,” “Alligators All Around,” “Chicken Soup with Rice,” and “In the Night Kitchen.”

The DVD runs approximately one hour, and it features an enhanced read-along function which highlights the words as they are read. In conjunction with the line, a consumer-friendly website provides families with the latest information on new releases, product reviews, activities for children, and more.  This DVD is not yet rated and it’s projected target audience is for children ages 3 to 9 years of age.

Purchase your copy of Where the Wild Things Are…and 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak.

Stay tuned for your chance to win your own copy of this DVD later this week, exclusively on Traveling with Baby.
