After research, we began brainstorming key elements for our party. Obviously, our ideas came directly from the book. It was just a matter of deciding the visual components to focus on. Hmmm......Max (the main character), wild things, jungle, boat...not hard choices to make at all =).
We listed our chosen elements, materials needed for each and places to get them. Then we divided the duties. Having an artistic background, I chose to do all the visual work while my wife took care of dessert and food, her favorite subjects! (In the end, everything was completed from the work of only 2 people in 3 weeks time!)
With our ultra handy sheet of lists and the book for reference, it was time to put it all in motion.
