Get Wild

You can sail in and out of weeks and almost over a year to get to where the Wild Things are — or take the G train to the Brooklyn Antiquarian Book Fair, which will exhibit more than 75 of author Maurice Sendak’s original drawings and paintings, created from the 1950s through the 1980s, as well as the plaster cow “Moo-reese” he decorated in 2000.

Moove along: Maurice Sendak decorated the plaster cow “Moo-reese” for the 2000 Manhattan Cow Parade.
