Synopsis:
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

Review:
One of Dr. Seuss's earliest works, The King's Stilts shows how important it is to both work hard and play hard. In the Kingdom of Binn, King Birtram works very hard, up at five every morning to ensure the kingdom is running smoothly. But at five o'clock in the afternoon, the workday ends and it's time to play . . . and in the case of King Birtram, that means racing around town on a pair of red stilts! But sour old Lord Droon doesn't think that this kind of fun is befitting Binn's king, and he steals the beloved stilts. Missing the stilts, King Birtram cannot have fun. In his sadness, the king doesn't notice that Binn is in danger: the Dike Trees that hold back the sea are being destroyed by the evil Nizzards. Can young Eric the page boy outsmart the dreary Droon and save the day?

Review:
Every afternoon King Birtram raced around the palace on a pair of old red stilts, until they were stolen. An uproarious tale.
