Enjoy listening to the story Where the Wild Things Are. We are using this story to help us write our own character flaw tales.

Where the Wild Things Are By Maurice Sendak [Animation]

A young boy whose imagination transports him far away from problems at home to a land where almost anything can happen. Max is looking for a little fun, so he dresses up in a comical wolf suit. Unfortunately, his mother is tired of his antics, and sends him to bed without any supper. What does Max learn about himself ? How does Max feel at different points in the story? Does Max like being King of the Wild Things? What does Max find out about home and love?

Here are some of our own exciting descriptive phrases inspired by Where The Wild Things Are...

'An ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max  

and he sailed off through night and day
and in and out of weeks                                                                                            

and almost over a year                                                                                                     

to where the wild things are. '
