Last Week's Trivia:

 

Question: Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" wasn't always supposed to be about things with yellow eyes and terrible claws. What was the original title of the book?

 

Answer: "Where the Wild Horses Are." But when Sendak went home to illustrate the book after pitching it, he realized he couldn't draw horses. When the publisher asked what he could draw, he said, "Things."
