Maurice Sendak, the author, just turned 80 back in September. Had a big party in New York City and much to everyone's surprise, came out. His beloved life partner who he lived with for ~50 years died a year or so ago and he (Sendak) said he continues to be very depressed. He never told his parents he was gay. I think as an author of children's books, he had other reasons for not blabbing about it, too.

looking at the publish date...my parents could have grew up with the book too lol
At almost 34 I'm certainly NOT old enough to be your mom.. ;) But I grew up with this book too, and it was one of the first ones I bought for my own kids.

We are currently on Inkheart watch at our house. My daughter read the book and is dying to see the movie.
