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.

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.

From the Hardcover edition.
PreSchool-Grade 4–This Seuss sampler highlights seven tried-and-true titles with some nifty paper engineering. The Cat in the Hat (1957) and its sequel (1958), Green Eggs and Ham (1960), Fox in Socks (1965), The Sneetches (1961), I Can Read with My Eyes Shut! (1978), and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (1960, all Random) are each given an enthusiastically designed spread, as the familiar artwork is showcased with an inviting variety of pop-ups, pull tabs, foldouts that conceal hidden surprises, and other easy-to-maneuver treats. The movable scenes capture the spirit of these books, as the Cat steps through a door and then uses all of his limbs (which can be manipulated with a pull tab) to juggle numerous items. Sam-I-am pops up to use a fishing pole with a real cord to offer a plate of green ham with a stylish flourish. The Cats quote, I can read in a circle and upside down! is appropriately presented on a wheel that children can turn. However, despite all of the visual fireworks, the texts of the tales have been severely abridged, and readers unfamiliar with them will find it difficult to figure out just what is going on. Purchase this attractive volume for display, or to share with Seuss fans, who will enjoy revisiting old favorites through a fresh, action-packed presentation.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
