When Max is sent to bed without his supper, he sails off to a world inhabited by the weirdest creatures you've ever seen, and becomes King of ALL wild things - that is until he gets hungry!

Maurice Sendak's famous illustrations from `Where The Wild Things Are' are brought to life here in this faithful adaptation of his hugely popular children's book.
Also included are 5 other stories all written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak - from The Nutshell Library with music by Carole King - `Alligators All Around', `Pierre', `One Was Johnny', and `Chicken Soup With Rice'; plus `In The Night Kitchen.'

It was great to find this collection in DVD format - it incorporates 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'In the Night Kitchen' and 'The Nutshell Kids'. It is suitable for all ages, if your child loves the book, they will love this! It uses the original text, too, so you can join in.

For those of you who, like me, grew up in the 70's, this has a wonderfully nostaligic feel. 'In The Night Kitchen' (featuring an animated Laurel and Hardy) has a surreal, dreamlike quality, which is slightly disturbing, but Hey! Kids love it! (mine does, anyway...) 'The Nutshell Kids' is set to music, sung by Carole King.

If you are expecting a slick production, you will be disappointed; this is a basic animation using Sendak's original illustrations. It's lack of polish adds to it's charm, though.

The only disappointment with this particular DVD edition (I don't know if there are any others), is that it's not possible to dip in and out of 'The Nutshell Kids', there seems to be no 'scene selection' option.

Apart from that, I thoroughly recommend it.

Bought this for my three year old on recommendation and it was an instant hit.She was a bit taken aback by the scary looking wild things and the dramatic music the first time she watched it yet kept saying "again, again". She also loves the beautifully sung Nutshell kids stories and The Night Kitchen. This DVD is unlike anything else we've seen, its so enchanting and very original. Within a couple of days my daughter and I were singing along to "8 Aligators", "Pierre" and "Chicken soup with rice". We both love this DVD and I have even watched it on my own sometimes because I'm captivated by Carole King's beautiful singing which compliments the stories very well. Buy it, you won't regret it.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and other Maurice Sendak stories. DVD.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE.
I like it 'cos it's cool. It is like the book sometimes and it's a good voice by
the man telling the story.

ALLIGATORS ALL AROUND.
I don't like it much but it's got funny bits.

PIERRE.
Pierre is funny, I like this better than 'where the wild things are',
the song is good. This was my favourite.

ONE WAS JOHNNY.
I like Johnny the counting and the song.

CHICKEN SOUP WITH RICE.
I like it, it's not like C.bee-bies

My five year old borrowed this from the library having read the 'Where the Wild Things Are' book. Although a bit different from what he usually watches he soon became hooked on the highly imaginative and lively stories and singing. So much so that we have had to buy a copy for ourselves.

My five and three year old absolutely adore this DVD. Others come and go, but, like the books, these stand the test of time. If your children also enjoy Maurice Sendak's books but, perhaps find the film "Where the wild things are" a little scary, then this could be for you.

For those of you who might be confuse, this is not the recent Spike Jonze production which is an feature length film. I haven't even seen that one so can't compare. Though I gather that that one departs considerably from the book, for obvious reasons.
This DVD is a collection of 1970s tv adaptations of Maurice Sendak's stories. Where the Wild Things Are is the 1973 version . It uses the original book drawings and partially animates them, bringing them very much to life. The dialogue is also exactly what is in the book, beautifully read, hence the whole thing is only about 10 mins long. And it is accompanied by very 1970s, very atmospheric, jazzy music. I love it. I think it's brilliant. But don't take my word for it. My two and a half year old, who was already a fan of the book, has wanted nothing else since he first saw it and spends his free time stomping around roaring "wild fings". A huge hit.
The other book adaptations aren't quite as good but my little one also seems to enjoy them, particularly "Alligators all around" which is the alphabet book from "The Nutshell Kids" - although they missed a trick by not putting the letter by the image on each scene - and also Pierre. These have all been put to music by Carole King which is fantastic, but it's just that none of the other books are as good as the main event.

After a long wait for this dvd, and having read the book to the children I felt this would be an excellent follow up. But I was left feeling very disappointed with Where the Wild Things Are, the book of story its self is quite short and the dvd doesn't elaborate on that, is seems poor quality and very dated not one of the best children's dvds I've bought.
