Where the Wild Things Are: Samoan Edition


Formats & editions


The award-winning much-loved children’s picture book Where the Wild Things Are is now translated into Samoan.

With the same lively, creative illustrations as the original book, the Samoan version retains the simplicity and imagination of Maurice Sendak’s story, capturing Max’s feisty character, the magic of the adventure and ‘wild rumpus’, and the pleasure of things returning to normal.
