Posted by Zotta Rendevouz

The first book is 30 years, beloved children's author Maurice Sendak in wrote and illustrated the story of a pig birthday party chaotic.

This does not sound nearly as scary as the scary characters celebrate "If the Wild Things Are." But parents are up in arms over Sendakin history than they were in "Wild Things" was published in 1963, the Christian Science Monitor.

"Bumble Ardy" follows the story of 9 years Bumble orphan pig has never had a birthday party. When Bumble decides to launch the final game at his aunt when she disappeared, the result is more than a few fear-inducing moments, including some grotesque masks costume and appearance of the Grim Reaper.

Parents may feel particularly nervous, because the monsters in this story is inside the house, or on a remote island, because they were the "Wild Things". It can not be satisfied with the licentious pigs, which are a party, drank salt water. (The first draft of the pigs drank wine, but Sendakin granted, the salt water has changed in the final version).

Very few comments mother "Bumble-Ardy" was specific about what bothers them about the book. Most say they just do not like it. reviewer of a teacher is called "Bumble Ardy", "disturbing book in so many ways."

The second evaluator, who bought his nephew's book, wrote: "I do not think that children can understand, or to see a particular sense of humor in this book ... too difficult for younger children."

Sendak says that parents are not willing to recognize and manage the nightmarish fantasies of children. He told the New York Times children's books that sought to "preserve [Kids] calm, keep them happy, keep them warm and safe ... I left him and I was considered weird. So be it. "

But while Sendak was accused of fear in the hearts of children for years, the Atlantic, writes that the paradox of his books is that "too often, children and adults do not agree with them."

Any civil war broke out in the households of Sendak's books, Atlantic said, because so often - despite concern of parents - children have absolutely adored them.

Sometimes parents come around. "Where the Wild Things Are" later became a literary success - for all ages.

But will they move to "Bumble-Ardy"? Look at the scenes of celebration! treats! evil!

After all the fuss dies down, they realize that "Bumble Ardy," is as imaginative as the previous work Sendak. They may realize that it's even more fun. And they could see that as "Wild Things "Bumble story offers children a" safe way to explore the fantasy of parentlessness, "The Atlantic wrote," before he returns, content and confident than loving arms.
