I came across this wonderful biology version of 'Where the Wild Things Are' some time ago, but I was never quite sure when the best time would be to feature it. The video was made by MIT biology student Joshua Meisel to promote a Halloween party in 2009, but it's really too great a production to be watched only for the sake of attending an undergraduate booze-up. The video captures the mysticism of Sendak's classic work, and I love the wonder portrayed by the main character. The video is an outstanding testament to Where the Wild Things Are - and today is the perfect day for you to watch it.

RIP Maurice Sendak - Your contributions will live on.
