RIP Children's Artist Maurice Sendak, Great Video

Acclaimed children's author Maurice Sendak, widely considered the most important children's book artist of the 20th Century, known for Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen and Outside Over There passed away on May 8, 2012 aged 83.

ONCEKids Publishing, home of the Fujimini Adventure Series holds great respect for the author.  We believe strongly in the importance of children's stories much like Mr. Sendak authored.  In tribute, below is a very funny interview conducted by Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert.  The conversation manages to cover several good topics, while bringing up good laughs and keeping it light.
