What do you think this quote means?

"We'll eat you up, we love you so."~ Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Where the Wild Things Are is a book for children. It's about a boy named Max who acts like a brat. He disobeys his mother and is sent to bef without dinner. While in his room he discovers a whole new place where a family of "Wild Things" live. At first they threaten to eat him, but they soon make him their king and become very fond of him. At the end of the story he decides to leave the wild things behind and return to his mother. The quote appears as the boy is getting ready to return home and they try to beg him to stay. I know it's a book for kids, but I just re-read it to my younger brother and that quote just seems so profound to me now. What do you think it means?
