Max is a wild thing, according to his mom. After a night of mischief he is sent to bed without dinner. When Max get into his room vines began to grow all around him and he begins to sail to where the wild things live. Of course Max ends up becoming the king of the wild things and they follow his every move. It takes being king for Max to realize where he truly belongs. I love how there is not text on each page of the book. It leaves room for students to make connections and predict what Max will do next. An activity for students to do is draw pictures with captions of what the would do if they were king or queen of the wild things. The DRA reading level is 16-18.
