Where The Wild Things Are
Transcript of Where The Wild Things Are
- Objects in the text are very sharp and have several points
-(ex) Claws, teeth, trees
-Pictures all have an edge and are square or rectangular, not round
-The moon is a crescent at points in the story as well
-The only rounded shapes are the "wild things" which gives off the feeling of them not being scary.
-The story is illustrated with panoramic pictures
-The story begins with the whole left page consisting of white space and the right page has a majority of white space but has one small, square picture in the middle
-As the story progresses, the larger the pictures, the less white space there is
-When Max's adventure begins to come to an end, the illustrations begin to shrink in size and white space becomes predominant again
-Muted and washed out colors (dull, dark, no vibrant colors)
-Colors are very dark (different hues of blues, greens, and browns)
-Constant theme of "forest colors"
-The only white colors are Max and the Moon
-Contrast makes Max and moon stand out.
-Color of the sky and shape of the moon is the only way to tell how much time has passed
-The wild things are all similar in color (Different shades and hues of tans and browns)
-The scepter that Max is given as King is yellow, just like the color of the wild things' eye: Showing Max has power over them
Texture and Perspective
-Technique: Cross-hatching, which is when pen and ink lines criss-cross in order to make shadows over the illustrations
-Artistic Style: Water Colors (Illustrations are transparent and luminous) and Pen and Ink
-This style adds texture because it gives the illustrations a rough and edgy feeling
-Also adds sharpness to the illustrations
-Very detailed: The lines add detail and texture to the characters
-Text and illustration do not overlap
-illustrations start off small but get larger as the story continues
-Eventually, there ends up being no words at all
-Max begins on the right side of the page but then moves to the middle and the left as the panoramic illustrations get larger
-The wild things take up most of the pages to show how big they are and how small Max is
-Rhythm of Sentences and Page Layout:
-Sentences are not complete and are split amongst pages
-Words start off on left page, then move to the bottom two pages, then there are no words at all.
-When pictures get smaller again, the words begin to appear and transition to the same layout that they started with
-The story ends with the ending of a sentence on the left page, and no picture on the right
- Sentences are split, encouraging the readers to continue to flip the pages
-Body language and expressions tell the story when there is no story being told
-mood and tense is somewhat angry because of the colors and body language being displayed

-Max gets bored of his adventure and finds his way home where his supper is still hot
-Theme and Moral

-Facing conflict and fears
-(The different creatures represented Max's anger and personality )
Where The Wild Things Are
How Text and Illustration Work Together
-Since the text and illustration never overlap, there is a smooth transition of there being text in the beginning, to there being no text at all, and then to the text coming back into the story
-Having text in the beginning of the story sets up the illustrations in way that that when the text begins to disappear, the illustrations can begin to tell a story in the minds of the readers
Overall Visual Quality of the Book
-The formatting of the book was very appealing and complimenting for the movement of the story
-The artistic style and technique was very aesthetic and enjoyable
