Reviews

K-Gr 2 Sendak's award-winning book has been translated for Spanish-speaking children, who will enjoy Max's dream of ruling the wild things, sharing their rumpus and, finally, returning home to where someone loves him.

Un clasico de todos los tiempos que sigue conquistando los corazones de los ninos. El texto sencillo, ritmico y expresivo y las ilustraciones son tan cautivadoras hoy como lo eran cuando yo era nino.--10 Must-Have Books for 2-Year-Olds (Brightly.com)
Las reproducciones mas claras del arte original son vibrantes y luminosas.---- H.
Este es uno de esos libros realmente escasos que pueden disfrutar por igual los ninos y los adultos. Si no estas de acuerdo, entonces has pasado demasiado tiempo desde que estuviste en uno de esos salvajes alborotos. Max se pone su traje de lobo para hacer alguna maldad y consigue que lo manden a la cama sin cenar. Por fortuna, crece un bosque en su cuarto, permitiendo que sus locos desmanes continuen sin impedimentos. Las ilustraciones a color de Sendak (tal vez las mejores de las hechas por el) son hermosas y cada vez que se vuelve una pand aacute;gina se descubre una nueva maravilla. Las cosas salvajes, con unos detalles que no encajan y unos ojos gigantes, se las arreglan de alguna manera para tener un aspecto terrible sin nunca causar miedo en realidad; en ocasiones son abiertamente divertidas. Las frases insertadas de manera desafiante por Sendak, una de sus seand ntilde;ales caracterand iacute;sticas, le dan al cuento el toque perfecto de la corriente de consciencia que flota entre la tierra de los sueand ntilde;os y la imaginaciand oacute;n de un niand ntilde;o. Este cland aacute;sico de Sendak es mand aacute;s divertido de lo que habrand iacute;as estado jamand aacute;s con un traje de lobo, y se las arregla para reafirmar la idea de que no hay un lugar como el hogar.--Amazon.com Review
