This fully illustrated book is about Max, a strong wild little boy, who likes to have fun. When his mother decides to send him to bed without supper, Max finds himself unexpectedly in the land of wild things. Instead of the bigger than life monsters eating him, they make Max their King. After some adventure, Max returns home with a new understanding for his parents and eats his supper. This book could easily be used in Kindergarten to 4th grade. I personally would use it more in grades 2nd to 4th by using the book as a writing prompt. The students could write a story of conflict and what they would do to resolve the solution. Another writing prompt could be asking the students to write a story about what they would do if they became a king.
Reading Level: Pre-K to 4th grade
