Book club week 2

For my second book I have decided to go with our very recent favourite: "Where the wild things are" by Maurice Sendak.
One of very talented photographers I know through one of photography groups shared photographs of her son in a costume. I have never heard of this book before and seeing the photographs made me want to read it.
Here is the link, please have a look, the photographs are amazing:
So, a couple of weeks ago as we were looking through the books at the library, I have spotted it! I was so excited and took the book, thinking it's just for me. Lucy was curious about the book and asked me to read it. To my surprise, she loved it. She asked to keep it a bit longer and we didn't return it with the rest of the books we took out that day, which means a lot. I found the book fascinating, but thought it's one of the children's books that really is mostly for adults. But obviously, the trick is that everybody loves it on different levels.
I am sure it's not the only fantastic book I wasn't aware about, so if you have any great books for children, please feel free to either recommend them in comments or send me an e-mail:

I think this is quite an old favourite for some people, recently made famous again by a film based on the book.. I remember really wanting to like the film, but it didn't quite love up to expectations.. But I can only really remember scenes.

I haven't seen the film yet, but the book is fantastic! :) MIght see it in the future, though it's hard to images what the film would be like!
