So we’re clear (and sorry, Mom), I’ve made up my mind to just cover my arms in children book’s characters. And apparently, I have Ursula Nordstrom to thank. She’s the editor behind Where the Wild Things Are‘s Maurice Sendak, The Giving Tree‘s Shel Silverstein, and Goodnight Moon‘s Margaret Wise Brown.

At this point, Nordstrom’s portrait will be prominently displayed on my forearm, along with Harold’s purple crayon and Max in a wolf costume…I’m still debating the bowl full of mush.


Just kidding…this is so bad ass.

“I would tell them to go to hell. That’s a question I will not tolerate.” – Maurice Sendak, on parents who think the Wild Things movie is too scary for children.

Reason no. 3,428,386 I love Maurice Sendak.
