9780394800929: I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew

A comic classic by Dr. Seuss about overcoming life’s obstacles turns 50!

Dr. Seuss tackles the struggles of everyday life’s—difficult people, bullies, bad weather, political unrest, even crowds—in the rhyming picture book I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. When our hero stubs his toe, he decides to find a less troublesome place to live. Soon he's off on a journey "to the City of Solla Sollew, on the banks of the beautiful River Wah-Hoo, where they never have troubles! At least, very few." But between his encounters with the Midwinter Jicker and the Perilous Poozer of Pompelmoose Pass, he soon finds out that confronting his problems might actually be easier than running away from them. A funny story that can be read purely for entertainment, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew is ideal for sparking discussions. It’s message—that the best way to deal with an obstacle is by tackling it head-on—makes this an perfect gift for all ages and occasions—especially graduations! Available for a limited time only with a peel-off 50th Anniversary Sticker on the cover, Seuss fans of all ages will find Solla Sollew an inspiring book to read again and again.

Review:

Our nameless hero--a typical Seuss hybrid who's part bear, part puppy, and part beyond categorization--has an innocent, carefree life, until it's ruined by minor problems. With a toe stubbed, and a tail bitten by a Quilligan Quail ("And I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead, and some come from behind"), he sets out on an ill-fated journey to find a better, less troublesome place: the fabled city of Solla Sollew, no less, "on the banks of the beautiful River Wah-Hoo,/ Where they never have troubles. At least very few." Like most dreamlands, Solla Sollew is harder to attain than expected--nobody seems to know how to get there, and the journey is far worse than anyone anticipated. When the fair city is finally attained there is, of course, a last straw; but a happy twist suggests troubles may be better faced than escaped. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

From the Inside Flap:

Illus. in full color. "The hero of this hilarious tale discovers that in attempting to avoid trouble one often encounters even greater difficulties. Seuss fans will be enthralled."--"Childhood Education.
