Let the Wild Rumpus Start!

Fans of Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are* will enjoy President Obama’s rendition (via C-SPAN) of the book to a group of kids at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Where the Wild Things Are is followed by the first lady and children doing If you Give a Mouse a Cookie. I’m not as fond of that book, and it’s fortunate the President didn’t take it on—it too easily reads like a satire on the legislative process.

UPDATE: Chris Holland couldn’t believe that I neglected to link to the trailer of the upcoming Where the Wild Things Are movie. Duly added.

*It’s too bad he didn’t do Sendak’s Pierre. He would have locked in the Liam vote.
