We Like to Read - Where The Wild Things Are - #HeinzPastaQuotes

This month's We Like to Read post is a little unusual to say the least! Not quite a book review, but I'm sure everyone is familiar with Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak already.

It was Children's Book Week between 30 June and 4 July and to celebrate Heinz teamed up with Tots100 to invite bloggers to get creative with their Alphabetti and spell out their favourite quotation from a children's book. Regular readers will know how much I enjoy great kids' books so I couldn't wait to get involved, but it was hard to choose just one quote when there are so many wonderful books and so many poignant phrases.

My favourites include Alice in Wonderland and Oh The Places You'll Go! whereas Wiss adores all of the Julia Donaldson books, but a firm favourite of both of us is Where The Wild Things Are. It's a beautiful story, with gorgeous illustrations and actually very few words, but for me, that makes it even more special.

It was great fun (and surprisingly hard) to fish around and find the right letters we needed, and of course we ate the rest of the tin on toast afterwards! Unfortunately, it seems that Max had a bit of a rumpus in the Alphabetti!
