SO MANY LOLS!!!!!

Stephen Colbert sat down with the curmudgeonly yet iconic children's book author Maurice Sendak for one of the most HIGHlarious interviews we've ever seen.

The funny thing is that Sendak doesn't even really like children that much, yet he writes for them. (Although don't say that to his face!!)

Pls watch the video after the jump. You won't regret it.

Parents Are NOT Liking 'Where the Wild Things Are' Author Maurice Sendak's New Book

Parents Are NOT Liking 'Where the Wild Things Are' Author Maurice Sendak's New Book

The tale of Bumble-Ardy by Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak is getting bad reviews from everyone parents!

Parents are saying the story of a pig's birthday party gone wrong is not interesting or appropriate for little kids — especially the parts when the monsters come in and the birthday pig gets a little tipsy.

One Amazon costomer review of the book from a teacher said:

"I was very disappointed. Disturbing book in so many ways."

If you thought these reviews might bother the author you'd be wrong! Sendak don't care! He says most children's books try to,

"keep [kids] calm, keep them happy, keep them snug and safe… I got out of that, and I was considered outlandish. So be it.”

Where the Wild Things Are got similar reviews when it was originally published, and (obviously) went on to be a literary and success for all ages.

May haps the same will happen for Bumble-Ardy!
