A really fun book. I wasn't aware that it followed the children's book 'Where the Wild Things are', so I inadvertently read a YA novel; it brought the magic of a childhood novel that I greatly enjoyed to life.

This book is really good! I personally really enjoyed it! If you liked the movie you should read this book!

This is the incorrect book cover - this cover is for Zeitoun, also by Eggers. Not The Wild Things!
