As Max imagines a world he wants to live, where he’s king and his parents can’t tell him what to do, he builds this world around him. Max came to an understanding about himself and his reality with the power of his own fantasy and imagination. Sendak once said something all adults should think about: Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.
