    In the Night Kitchen
    Adapted from the controversial children's book by author Maurice Sendak, this lighthearted fantasy follows the dreamy adventures of a young boy named Mickey as he discovers just how the local bakers prepare their delectable morning cakes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The Nutshell Kids
    Includes animated versions of Sendak favorites Chicken Soup With Rice, Alligators All Around, One Was Johnny, and Pierre. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Where the Wild Things Are
    Maurice Sendak's fanciful children's stories of strange but friendly monsters come off of the page and onto the screen in this animated adaptation of his best-known work. After Max gets in trouble with his mom and dad, he's sent to bed without dinner, and he finds himself spirited away to a magical land where he is the king of the wild creatures. But is becoming king of the monsters really better than being with the people who love you the most? ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
