sendak slivers

This is interesting, did you know that the original concept for the book Where The Wild Things Are was supposed to feature horses instead of monsters? Good thing for Mr. Sendak's publisher who thought that he couldn't really draw horses, and suggested that he try something else instead. The horses were eventually replaced by caricatures of various family members who would visit him in his Brooklyn home as a child, and thank goodness, because in my opinion the things are what really makes this book!
