Where the Wilds Things Are

"In honor of the movie version of possibly the greatest children's books ever, I decided to make a carving of one of the wild things from 'Where the Wild Things Are.' I used an X-Acto knife, a rotary hand tool, and a few regular pumpkin carving kit tools. To clean out his guts I used the scooper that came in the kit. Not too high-tech, but it works."
