Dave Eggers' Where the Wild Things Are Novelization to Include Special Edition Furry Cover

Dave Eggers

By now you might have heard about the film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are; these two under-the-radar guys named Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers did the directing and screenplaying respectively, and some little-known band called Arcade Fire will even have their music featured in the movie. You might also know that Eggers is planning a 300-page novelization of the movie, due in October and called The Wild Things. Now here's something that maybe you didn't know: Eggers' novelization is getting a special-edition treatment that will simultaneously frighten you and tug at your heartstrings.
