Where the Wild Things Are Now Book Excerpt:

Domestication has often seemed a matter of the distant past, a series of distinct events involving humans and other species that took place long ago. Today, as genetic manipulation continues to break new barriers in scientific and medical research, we appear to be entering an age of biological control. Are we also writing a new chapter in the history of domestication? Where the Wild Things Are Now explores the relevance of domestication for anthropologists and scholars in related fields who are concerned with understanding ongoing change in processes affecting humans as well as other species. From the pet food industry and its critics to salmon farming in Tasmania, the protection of endangered species in Vietnam and the pigeon fanciers who influenced Darwin, Where the Wild Things Are Now provides an urgently needed re-examination of the concept of domestication against the shifting background of relationships between humans, animals and plants.

Why the Wild Things Are Book Excerpt:

Whether they see themselves as King of the Wild Things or protector of Toto, children live in a world filled with animals--both real and imaginary. From Black Beauty to Barney, animal characters romp through children's books, cartoons, videos, and computer games. As Gail Melson tells us, more than three-quarters of all children in America live with pets and are now more likely to grow up with a pet than with both parents. She explores not only the therapeutic power of pet-owning for children with emotional or physical handicaps but also the ways in which zoo and farm animals, and even certain purple television characters, become confidants or teachers for children--and sometimes, tragically, their victims. Yet perhaps because animals are ubiquitous, what they really mean to children, for better and for worse, has been unexplored territory. Why the Wild Things Are is the first book to examine children's many connections to animals and to explore their developmental significance. What does it mean that children's earliest dreams are of animals? What is the unique gift that a puppy can give to a boy? Drawing on psychological research, history, and children's media, Why the Wild Things Are explores the growth of the human-animal connection. In chapters on children's emotional ties to their pets, the cognitive challenges of animal contacts, animal symbols as building blocks of the self, and pointless cruelty to animals, Melson shows how children's innate interest in animals is shaped by their families and their social worlds, and may in turn shape the kind of people they will become.

Where the Wild Things Grow Book Excerpt:

Nestled by the roadside, peeking through the hedgerows, hidden in the woods and even in city streets and parks, wild food is all around us - if you know where to look. From woodland mushrooms and riverbank redcurrants to garden weeds and urban cherry blossoms, Where the Wild Things Grow takes us on a journey through the forager's landscape. Drawing on 25 years of foraging experience, David Hamilton show us how and where to hunt for the food that is hidden all around us. Along the way he delves into the forgotten histories and science of wild foods and their habitats and reveals his many foraging secrets, tips and recipes. You'll discover where to find mallows, mustards and pennywort, as well as sumac, figs and mulberries. You'll learn how to pick the sweetest berries, preserve mushrooms using only a radiator and prepare salads, risottos and puddings all with wild food. In all weathers, landscapes and seasons, David shows us that foraging doesn't just introduce us to new tastes and sensations, it also brings us closer to the natural world on our doorstep. Beautifully illustrated and rich in detail, Where the Wild Things Grow is more than a field guide - it is a celebration of the wonderful and fragile gifts hidden in our landscape.

Max en de Wild Things Book Excerpt:

In 2003 vroeg filmregisseur Spike Jonze aan Dave Eggers of hij mee wilde werken aan de bewerking tot film van Maurice Sendaks klassieke kinderboek Where the Wild Things Are (Max en de Maximonsters in Nederland). Zo geschiede, en anno oktober 2009 is het dan zo ver. De film belooft een van de verrassingen van dit najaar te worden. Maar het wordt nog mooier: Sendak vroeg aan Eggers of hij een op zijn kinderboek geïnspireerd verhaal wilde schrijven voor alle leeftijden, en het resultaat is Max (en de Wild Things). Grotendeels gebaseerd op het boek en de film is Max (en de Wild Things) toch ook weer 100% een roman van Dave Eggers, en gaat over de verwarring van een jongetje, Max geheten, die zijn weg probeert te vinden in een wereld die hij niet onder controle heeft. Zijn vader is ervandoor, zijn moeder brengt haar tijd door met haar nieuwe (jongere) vriend, en zijn tienerzus heeft andere zaken aan haar hoofd. Max ontdekt dat hij in staat is tot verbazingwekkende transformaties: hij draagt zijn wolvenpak, bijt zijn moeder en kan zijn uitbarstingen niet altijd controleren. Na een ruzie ontvlucht hij het ouderlijk huis en verdwijnt in een bos waar hij een boot vindt, instapt en de open zee op vaart, met onbekende bestemming. Hij belandt op het eiland van de Wild Things, en wordt al snel gekroond tot koning. Maar Max realiseert zich al snel dat de Wild Things manisch-depressieve dieren met vaste gewoontes en een ongepolijst temperament net zoveel van hem willen als hij van hen

"How Picturebooks Work is an innovative and engaging look at the interplay between text and image in a host of children's fiction. Drawing from an international range of major children's books, Maria Nikolajeva and Carole Scott discuss such favorites as Curious George and Frog and Toad Are Friends, along with the works of Maurice Sendak and Tove Jansson, to name a few. Picturebooks appeal to all readers - young and old. They provide common ground between generations and - perhaps more than any other literary or artistic medium - shape the representation and socialization of children. With 116 illustrations, How Picturebooks Work offers the reader a new methodology, groundbreaking theories, terminology, and working tools for understanding the dynamic picturebook form."--Jacket.

Words about Pictures Book Excerpt:

A pioneering study of a unique narrative form, Words about Pictures examines the special qualities of picture books--books intended to educate or tell stories to young children. Drawing from a number of aesthetic and literary sources, Perry Nodelman explores the ways in which the interplay of the verbal and visual aspects of picture books conveys more narrative information and stimulation than either medium could achieve alone. Moving from "baby" books, alphabet books, and word books to such well-known children's picture books as Nancy Ekholm Burkert's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Gerald McDermott's Arrow to the Sun, Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, and Chris Van Allsburg's The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, Nodelman reveals how picture-book narrative is affected by the exclusively visual information of picture-book design and illustration as well as by the relationships between pictures and their complementary texts.

Wild Things Book Excerpt:

In Wild Things Jack Halberstam offers an alternative history of sexuality by tracing the ways in which wildness has been associated with queerness and queer bodies throughout the twentieth century. Halberstam theorizes the wild as an unbounded and unpredictable space that offers sources of opposition to modernity's orderly impulses. Wildness illuminates the normative taxonomies of sexuality against which radical queer practice and politics operate. Throughout, Halberstam engages with a wide variety of texts, practices, and cultural imaginaries—from zombies, falconry, and M. NourbeSe Philip's Zong! to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are and the career of Irish anticolonial revolutionary Roger Casement—to demonstrate how wildness provides the means to know and to be in ways that transgress Euro-American notions of the modern liberal subject. With Wild Things, Halberstam opens new possibilities for queer theory and for wild thinking more broadly.
