|So, Max stared into their yellow eyes, without ever blinking even once! And the wild things were subdued. |

Perhaps, Maurice Sendak was inspired by the Yiddish expression 'vilde chaya', meaning boisterous children. These 'wild things' are located in the Ben Buckler park overlooking Bondi Beach which you can just make out in the background. It is a wonderful place for a beer and fish'n'chips as the sun sets on a Saturday.
