Product description

Review

Praise for Dr. Seuss:
“[Dr. Seuss] has…instilled a lifelong love of books, learning and reading [in children]” The Telegraph

“Dr. Seuss ignites a child’s imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses” The Express

“The magic of Dr. Seuss, with his hilarious rhymes, belongs on the family bookshelf” Sunday Times Magazine

“The author… has filled many a childhood with unforgettable characters, stunning illustrations, and of course, glorious rhyme” The Guardian

Praise for And To Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street:
“The cleverest book I have met with for many years. The swing and merriment of the pictures and the natural truthful simplicity of the untruthfulness.”
Beatrix Potter, author of The Tale of Peter Rabbit

About the Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books, and his first book – And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street – was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful sounding silliness and fun
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 September 2019
On Monday, on the BBC TV quiz ‘Only Connect’ there was a question where you had to guess the 4th in the sequence:

[picture of Michael Fish] [Michel Fish, Michael Fish] ? ?

Once my husband had identified Michael Fish (ex-TV metereologist), I knew the answer was “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”, without having the faintest idea why. It just sounded right. The answer was then given, stating that it was a Dr.Seuss book.
Then on Tuesday, at the pub quiz, we had to decipher three book titles:
1 F, 2 F, R F, B F (also S 5, and A T o 2 C)
There was that book again! I could not recall having read it, and my husband had never heard of it, so there was only one thing left to do. On Wednesday, I ordered a copy. It arrived on Friday, and now on Saturday I have read it and am writing my review.
I love it!
The illustrations are superbly fabulous, and the rhyming text anarchically silly. This is not a book to teach children about reality (it does have ‘lessons’ on counting and colours) – it is a book about the way words sound, and all the fun you can have with rhyming. Incidentally, it will help children learn to read, as they see how similar sounding words look similar too. But, for me, the pleasure of reading it, was in the way it sounded and looked.

“If you like to go Bump! Bump!
just jump on the hump of the Wump of Gump”

“if you wish to wish a wish,
you may swish for fish
with my Ish wish dish”

This is a great book for any child – whether they are reading for reading yet or not. It is also fun for middle-aged non-parents!
I will be passing this lovely book on to two of our pub quiz team mates who have a one-year-old child. It is never too early to start kids on books.
