“Where the wild things are”, graphic novel

Children aged 3, 4 and 5 years of Tremañes School (Spanish state) read the book by Maurice Sendak, enjoyed a storytelling and analyzed history. We divided the book into three parts; each class was responsible for a part. Children studied the scenes and decided what the characters were saying. After preparing costumes and decoration to represent faithfully the scenes. We had long sessions of makeup, costumes, pictures … Then reassemble the texts and this is the result: our tribute to Sendak.
This graphic novel (in print) is exposed to the public in the Municipal Library La Calzada. Hope you like.
