One night, Max puts on his wolf costume and creates mischief. His mother then sends him to bed without supper. That night in his room, he travels to the place where the wild things are. There, he becomes the king of all things wild. Max realizes that being king of all things wild is nothing if he is lonely. So he travels back to his room where a hot supper is waiting for him.
This is a classic children's book about children's imagination. There are so much to do with this book no matter what grade. I would have my students write about a time where they felt like a wild thing and give them the opportunity to share it with the class.
