Google’s celebrating what would have been Maurice Sendak’s 85th birthday — and so should you! Let the wild rumpus start!

He left, in May, when the moon was full, and my life admits an absence shaped like a grumpy, maniacal genius. Maurice Sendak was my friend for 35 years, and he remains my muse despite the distance insisted upon by death.

Another reason to pick up EW this week: 12 pages of moving tributes to 2012’s late greats, including Wicked author Gregory Maguire’s celebration of Maurice Sendak.

Incredibly sad news this morning — beloved children’s author and illustrator Maurice Sendak died today at the age of 83. He suffered complications after a recent stroke.

We’ll always remember Sendak for Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, and his amazing, hilarious appearance on The Colbert Report this past January.
