    Isaac Newton was always a loner, preferring to spend his time contemplating the mysteries of the universe. When the plague broke out in London in 1665 he was forced to return home from college. It was during this period of so much death that Newton gave life to some of the most important theories in modern science, including gravity and the laws of motion.

    It seems entirely fitting that Maurice Sendak was born on the same day that Mickey Mouse first made his cartoon debut - June 10, 1928. Sendak was crazy about cartoons and comic books, and at 12, after seeing Disney's Fantasia, he decided that he was going to become an illustrator. His love of children's books began early: Often sick and confined to bed, little Maurice read and read and read.
