Style Your Wild Thing

clarkkent.jpgThe fur-covered editions of Dave Eggers's The Wild Things have arrived at the McSweeney's offices and the first thing the group did was to get busy styling that monster hair. The results are highly amusing (and somewhat unnecessarily cute, e.g. the Clark Kent Wild Thing to the right), but McSweeney's isn't stopping there: they're challenging all you Wild Things readers to send in photos of your own stylized versions of the book to win a special prize. No word on what that prize is yet, but I can't wait to see all the entries. Email your photos to webmaster[at]mcsweeneys[dot]net and check back on November 16 to find out who wins.
