In a 1985 photo, author Maurice Sendak poses in St. Paul, Minn., with one of the characters from the opera “Where the Wild Things Are,” based on his book of the same name. Sendak died Tuesday in Danbury, Conn. He was 83.

The man whose story helped so many drift off to sleep has gone off to his own land of dreams. “Oh please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so.” -Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak
