AmoXcalli is grieving the loss of a Titan of children’s literature, author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak who died today. We’re not the only ones. The internet is awash with obits, tributes, memories, etc. I don’t think there is a life that he didn’t touch in some way with his writing, his humor, his art, or his genius.

Rest in peace Mr. Sendak.

People wanting to comment, can sign his guestbook here at Legacy

It is the custom here at AmoXcalli, to do a roundup of links when one of our beloved authors passes. Keep coming back to see the list as it grows or leave one of your own in the comments section. We’ll post as many as we can as a virtual altar, each link a flower in a vase or as we stay in Spanish, un descanso.

Links are in no particular order.
