    Manderson’s reading of Maurice Sendak’s children’s story, “Where the Wild Things Are” offers a thesis that is grounded on the idea of the absence of ethics within modern law.

Both very intelligent scholars, they knew how to spin a tale in the most effective way possible. However, they had plenty of work just dealing with the tales’ text, so in the area of illustration, they let their younger brother
