This is a classic book that adults often point to as one of their favorite books from their childhood. The illustrations get larger as the reader proceeds through the book, and the reader is meant to imagine that the rompus that ensues. Personally, however, I find the book a bit dull.
I know that most people love this book, but I took a class in college where we analyzed this book and after that I really didn't care for it anymore. Doesn't have the best messages.
This story and the images are so captivating. Sendak captures childhood so sweetly and honestly.
A classic. Sweet, brilliant, and great illustrations.
This is a classic children's book. It has neat pictures and a basic story. My children weren't super into this book.
The book is much better than the movie.
A incredible tale. Simply told... but wonderful in it's complexity. IT NEVER GETS OLD.
One of the best children's books ever! Imaginative!
The perfect bed-time story, your child will want this story again, and again, and again.
This is always a great bed time read for the kids at night. Great prose, wonderful illustrations, and a lesson to be shared with all children. Looking forward to the upcoming film version, hope I won't be disappointed.
