Furry Costume Contest!


Dave Eggers is now on Instagram. To celebrate, he is loaning out the original furry costume Max wore in the film Where the Wild Things Are to one 4th-grade classroom in the U.S. To enter, leave a comment on this Instagram post. The winning classroom will be randomly selected on October 17. We’ll send you the costume, on loan till after Halloween. We ask that you return it with at least two student-written haikus about feral-ness and/or hot soup.

NOTE: The costume is already intentionally dirty. When you receive a filthy, itchy costume with bent whiskers and missing feet, it is all as intended.
