Today at work a friend was saying she was trying to find the first book that her daughter ever read, so she could purchase it for her grandchild. It got me to thinking about the first book that I remember actually reading.
Here's a watercolor that I did of one of the characters from, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I think this book is what got me interested in all things monsters at a very young age. Please leave the title of the first book you remember reading in the comments section at the bottom of this post.
