Where the Wild things Are
Tackk By: Caleb Carwell
Max is a little boy with a large imagination. One night, him and his mother get into an argument because he is acting like a wild thing and starts to get a little disrespectful. His mother sends him to bed with no supper because he yelled at her. Max in angry and goes to his room with no supper. While in his rooms, he begins to dream, fantasize or some kind of imagining. He dreams of a world where the population consists of 'Wild Things'. When he arrives, he is first approached by them aggressively, but using a magic trick, trains them to obey him. A lot goes by and he ends up missing his mother so he returns home. When he returns home, a warm bowl of soup is waiting for him at his bed.
1.) Parents influence the way that kids think and react to certain situations.
When Max was in his imaginary land, he partied with the monsters a little bit, then sent them off to bed with no supper. "Now Stop!" Max said and sent the wild things off to bed without their supper." Earlier that night, Max's mother sent him to bed without supper because he was acting up. That influenced Max in the way that he sent the monsters off to bed without supper.
I chose this because it is a good example of how parents influence their kids. Max's mother sent him to bed without food one night. When Max was in his room, or his imaginary land, he was interacting with the monsters and sent them to bed with no supper. This is an example of how Max's parents' actions affected how Max treated his imaginary creatures. Basically, it influenced how he thought in that situation sense the creatures were just thought up and not really there.
2.) Mothers will always love you, even when you act up. "and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him". In the beginning of the story, Max's mother sends him to bed with no supper. When Max returns from his fantasy, a warm bowl of soup is waiting for him. I believe that the bowl of soup was made by his mother while he was sleeping, dreaming, or fantasizing, which ever you believe he is doing. I chose this because his mom still made him supper even though she was mad at him. If his mother truly didn't care about him anymore, she would not have bothered to make him a bowl of soup for supper.
I can relate to this because sometimes I get angry with my mother, but I still love her and know she loves me.
3.) Even mean monsters are able to love. This says that you should always love people, no matter how they act. "But the wild things cried, "Oh please don't go- we'll eat you up- we love you so!" I believe that the monsters represent Max's feelings towards his mother. He is angry with his mother at the moment, but deep down he knows that he loves her very much.
This is saying that Max should love his mom, even though they are mad at each other. The main implication is that he loves his mother, even though they are mad at each other. His feelings are being expressed by the monsters. The mean scary monsters represent how he is angry with his mother, but the kind and soft side of the monsters represent the deep down love he still has for his mother.
