Google is honoring children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak by celebrating his work with a "doodle" on its home page on Monday, which would have been his 85th birthday.
Caldecott Medal honoree Sendak was renowned for his children's books Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen and passed away in May 2012. The latest doodle on the search engine's home page features characters from some of the gay author's most beloved stories.
The animated scene was a hit on social media, particularly on Twitter, where his name has been trending since early this morning.
