Where The Wild Things Are A young boy named Max has an active imagination| and he will throw fits if others don’t go along with what he wants. Max – following an incident with Claire (his
sister) and her friends| and following a tantrum which he throws as a result of his Mother paying more attention to her boyfriend than to him – runs away from home.
Wearing his wolf costume at the time| Max not only runs away physically| but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world| an ocean away| is inhabited by large
wild beasts| including one named Carol who is much like Max himself in temperament. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type| the
wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems.
