Where the Wild Things Are Mural

A wonderful scene from a much loved children's classic.

 Where the Wild Things are Located just off Streatham High Road opposite the South London Press building this is a wonderful mural inspired by Maurice Sendak's much loved children classic Where the Wild Things Are.

The piece depicts a scene from the book with the hero Max and one of the monsters. As well as being a children's author and illustrator, Sendak was himself a Muralist whose work can be seen at the Rosenbach Museum and Gallery in Philadelphia, and we think he would thoroughly approve of this tribute to his work!
