By Storese Meatstack as told to Opie’s Mom
Inspired of course by Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are – Our family’s favorite bedtime story!
The night that Opie put on his Human suit and made mischief of one kind
His mother called him “WILD THING!”
And Opie said “I’LL EAT YOU UP! Or GRRRRRRRR!”
So he went to bed without eating anything.
That very night in Opie’s crate a blanket forest grew until his ceiling hung with soft flannel and the wall became the world all around and a freeway tumbled by with a private van for Opie and he drove all through a night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are.
And he when he came to the place where the wild things are they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws. They also yipped their terrible yips and barked their terrible barks and howled their terrible howls!
Till Opie said “BE STILL!” And tamed them with the magic trick
of sniffing all of their butts and they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all
and made him King of all wild things.
And now, cried Opie, “Let the wild rumpus start!”

“Now Stop!” Opie said and sent the wild things off to drink water.
But Opie – King of the Wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.
Then from far away he smelled duck, potato and liver treats and little boy feet.
So he gave up being king of the wild things
But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go we’ll eat you up – we love you so!”
And Opie said, “No!”
The Wild things yipped their terrible barks and howled their terrible howls and sniffed each other’s butts, but Opie got his leash and caught the magic van ride home
And drove back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own home
Where he found his supper waiting for him
And it was still…. In the bowl!
