Maurice Sendak was originally going to call his new children's book "Where the Wild Horses Are," and it would have featured horses. But Sendak realized that he didn't know how to draw horses. Then an editor suggested the more flexible "Wild Things" and Sendak had the title for his book. More than 19 million copies of "Where the Wild Things Are" have been sold since it was first published in 1963.
