Google has a fun doodle today to celebrate what would have been the 85th birthday of the author and illustrator of the best-selling children’s book Where the Wild Things Are …

Where the Wild Things Are, which sold 17 million copies, follows the adventures of a Max, a young boy who fights monsters in an imaginary land. Sendak, born in Poland, died just over a year ago, aged 83.
