#StorytimeLoop – Where the Wild Things are

Instagram is an incredible creative place! Come and get amazed by a group of photographers that decided to recreate a Storytime tale in their instagram feeds.

Their first story is one of our favorites: Where the Wild Things are, and starts like this:

The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another, 

his mother called him “WILD THING!”

and Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!”,

so he was sent to bed without eating anything.

That very night in Max’s room a forest grew, and grew , and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around

and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max

and he sailed off through night and day,

and in and out of weeks, and almost over a year

to where the wild things are.


And when he came to the place where the wild things are,

they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible claws till Max said


and tamed with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once

and they were frightened and called him

the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things.

“And now” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”

“Now stop!”

Max said and sent the wild things off to bed without their supper. And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.

Then all around from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat,
so he gave up being king of where the wild things are.
But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go, we’ll
eat you up-we love you so!”

And Max said, “No!”

The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth

and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws

but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye
and sailed back over a year

and in and out of weeks

and through a day

and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper

waiting for him

and it was still hot
