The Wild Things

by Dave Eggers

The Wild Things Synopsis

The Wild Things by Dave Eggers is the novelisation of Maurice Sendak's classic Max likes to make noise, get dirty, ride his bike without a helmet and howl like a wolf. In any other age he would have just been considered a boy. These days he is considered wilful and deranged. After a row with his mother, Max runs away. He jumps into a boat and sails across the ocean to a strange island where giant and destructive beasts reign - the Wild Things. After almost being eaten, Max gains their trust, and he is made their king. But what will he do with the responsibility? 'A life-affirming delight' GQ 'Compelling, fantastical, engrossing' Shortlist 'Let the wild rumpus start!' Grazia
