Strength In Wild Imagination

Small is Good.

When the wild things contemplate eating Max, he tells them they can’t eat him because he’s a King.  “But you’re so small.”  They reply.  “Small is good.”  Explains Max.  “My powers are able to slip right through the cracks.”  “But what if the cracks are closed up?”  Ask the wild things. 

“Then I have a recracker which goes right through that.”  “But what if they have some sort of material that recrackers can’t get through?”  “Then I have a double recracker that can get through anything in this whole universe and that’s the end.  And there’s nothing more powerful than that – ever.  Period.”

When Max tells the wild things he can make everything right.  They ask, “What about loneliness?  Will you keep out all the sadness?”  Max says, “I have a sadness shield, that keeps out all the sadness.  It’s big enough for all of us.”
