The William Shatner Comic Con reading of classic kids’ book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ is a sarcastically climatic dramatic performance to get kids excited about reading.
William Shatner is known for his many charities and social work to get kids more actively involved in reading. His appearance at the Denver Comic Con allowed him to send kids a very important message: it takes an active imagination to bring to life the words on the page. Shatner uses his booming voice to interact and focus the children’s attention on the written words of the story and encourages the children to imagine for themselves what the images would look like.
Shatner’s amazingly bold storybook narrator voice, sarcastic tone and hyperbolic reading style lends itself well to the adventurous tale of Max and the Wild Things.
