Anglais The Wild Things (édition en anglais)

À propos

Seven-year-old Max likes to make noise, get dirty, ride his bike without a helmet, and howl like a wolf. In any other era, he would be considered a boy. In 2007, he is considered wilful and deranged. His home life is problematic. His parents are divorced; his father, immature and romantic, lives in the city. His mother has taken up with a younger man who steals quarters from the change bowl in the foyer. Driven by a series of pressures internal and external, Max leaves home, jumps in a boat and sails across the ocean to a strange island where giant beasts reign - the Wild Things from Maurice Sendak's visionary classic.


This is an all-ages adventure, full of wit and soul, that explores the chaos of youth while Max explores the chaos of the world around him.
