Beloved children’s author and illustrator Maurice Sendak gets the Google doodle treatment today on what would have been his 85th birthday. Sendak rose to widespread acclaim with his 1963 book “Where the Wild Things Are” and continued to produce work until his death in May 2012.

The doodle starts by taking boyish hero Max through the land of the Wild Things and enters other familiar settings sprung from Sendak’s imagination. A party of Sendak’s characters gather around a cake for the the author and illustrator at the conclusion.
