Staff Reviews

Unless you subscribed to Redbook magazine in the 1950's, you've probably never encountered these gorgeous examples of logical presposterosity.  Fortunately, they've been rescued from the archives and published here for the first time in book form. All four stories are rediscovered classics, but my favorite is the Mulberry Street story, "How Officer Pat Saved the Whole Town." I feel terrible for my younger self who never got to read or hear these stories.  Fortunately, the children in your life need suffer no such deprivation.  Ages 4 and up. --Alex M.

A follow-up to The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss

A new Dr. Seuss book This follow-up to The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories features familiar Seussian faces and places--including Horton the Elephant, Marco, Mulberry Street, and a Grinch--as well as an introduction by renowned Seuss scholar Charles D. Cohen. Seuss fans will learn more about Horton's integrity, Marco's amazing imagination, a narrowly avoided disaster on Mullbery Street, and a devious Grinch. With a color palette enhanced beyond that of the magazines in which the stories originally appeared, this new volume of "lost" tales is a perfect gift for young readers and a must-have for Seuss collectors of all ages.
