Max Costume from Where the Wild Things Are


I have one of the original Max furry costumes used in Where the Wild Things Are, and periodically I’ve loaned it out to kids and classrooms for Halloween. This year I’m opening it up to any fourth-grade classroom in the U.S. Comment below, and my colleague Amanda Uhle will randomly pick a winner on Oct 17. We’ll send you the costume, on loan till after Halloween. We ask that you return it with at least two student-written haikus about feral-ness and/or hot soup. Note that it is already intentionally dirty. When you receive a filthy, itchy costume with bent whiskers and missing feet, it is all as intended.
