The Murphy Library this Thursday is “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Posted on: April 17, 2010

A little boy acts up and is sent to his room.  What should he do in this situation?  Have an adventure, of course.

The Murphy Library is showing “Where the Wild Things Are” on Thursday at 3:15 p.m.

Maurice Sendak wrote the children’s book and director Spike Jonze made the movie.  It is rated PG and runs 101 minutes. There is no 6 p.m. screening.

Sendak gave Jonze the highest commendation after seeing the movie when he said that Jonze “turned it into his without giving up mine.” 

The large “wild things” resemble Sendak’s drawings, but even more so, the feelings of a little boy are caught in the camera’s eye.

Want to extend the fun?  The library has Sendak’s book to borrow and read.  Call the library at 837-2417.
