Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of a young boy named Max with an active imagination. After throwing a tantrum because he felt that he was not being given enough attention, Max runs away to a world in his imagination filled with large wild beasts. Max befriends Carol, one of the beasts, who has a temperament much like his. Max is able to forge a friendship with these “wild things” by telling them that he is a king who can solve all of their problems magically.
