Maurice Sendak, the author of the best-selling children's book 'Where the Wild Things Are', has died aged 83. Sendak died during the night at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut from complications arising from a recent stroke, a hospital spokesperson said on Tuesday. Many considered Sendak one of the most important children's book writers of the 20th century. A posthumous book, titled 'My Brother's Book', which is a poem written and illustrated by Mr. Sendak and inspired by his love for his late brother, is scheduled to be published next February.
