Dave Eggers has a new book coming out in October! It's an adaptation(?) of the children's book Where the Wild Things Are called The Wild Things, and the cover is, well, precious!

The release date for the book is October 1st of this year, which is set to coincide with the release of the Where the Wild Things Are movie Eggers co-wrote with Spike Jonze, which is to debut in theaters on October 16th of this year.

The film has been the subject of some controversy in Hollywood, with rumors circulating at one point last year that Warner Brothers was so disappointed with it that they were going to start from scratch and re-shoot the entire $75-million film.

Regardless, we will probably buy this book, which is being published by Eggers' McSweeney's publishing house, if only because the cover is so damn precious. Look at it—it's just so precious, isn't it? Don't you just want to give it a hug?!
