That particular work was a fond part of my (and many others I'm sure) childhood. He'll be missed. May he rest in peace.

Max (Max Records), a lonely nine-year-old boy[4] with an active imagination whose parents are divorced, wears a wolf costume and chases his dog. His older sister, Claire (Pepita Emmerichs), does nothing when her friends crush Max's snow fort (with him inside) during a snowball fight. Out of frustration Max messes up her bedroom and destroys a frame that he had made for her. Max's teacher Mr. Elliot (Steve Mouzakis) teaches him and his classmates about the eventual death of the sun. His mother, Connie (Catherine Keener) invites her boyfriend (Mark Ruffalo) to dinner. Max becomes upset with his mother for not coming to the fort he made in his room. He wears his wolf costume, acts like an animal, and demands to be fed. When his mother gets upset, he throws a tantrum and bites her on the shoulder. She yells at him and he runs away, scared by what transpired. At the edge of a pond Max finds a small boat that he boards.
