    Maurice made a lot of childhoods happier. He will be missed.

    "And shepherds we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be,
    In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."

    I always loved Little Bear, which had a different author, but illustrations by Sendak.
    I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!

    Very, very sad news. I always had respect for his work, but I was enchanted by the man when I saw him on the Colbert Report. He really was funny, sharp and humane.

    Awww, damn! I loved that book when I was a kid. I remember being excited when I finally took it out of the library.

    RIP, Sendak. I loved your illustrations.
