A Hatful of Seuss by Dr. Seuss: 5 FAVORITE STORIES;HARDCOVER WITH DUST JACKET; LIKE NEW, UNUSED. A Hatful of Seuss: Five Favorite Dr. Seuss Stories BY DR. SEUSS. This collection of five complete, illustrated Dr. Seuss classics is a "hatful," but you'd have to have a Cat-in-the-Hat-sized chapeau to contain all the treasures in this hefty book. Within its pages you'll find Theodor Seuss Geisel's exuberant creations Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), If I Ran the Zoo (1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1954), The Sneetches and Other Stories (1961), and Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book (1962). In Bartholomew and the Oobleck, a non-rhyming Seuss story, prepare for an eyeful of green goo. In If I Ran the Zoo, young Gerald McGrew decides he would make a few changes if he ran the zoo--including the acquisition of more unusual beasts (such as an Elephant-Cat) from places "quite out-of-the-way." In addition to the potentially unsettling concept of traversing continents in search of wild beasts to trap and cage, there are a couple of dated references that parents may want to preview before reading to kids. For example, McGrew proclaims, "I'll hunt in the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant/With helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant,/And capture a fine fluffy bird called the Bustard/Who only eats custard with sauce made of mustard." As for the rest of this delightful collection, Horton Hears a Who! is a tale that teaches us "a person's a person, no matter how small." And of course, you may remember the Star-Belly Sneetches, the "snooty old smarties" who pranced antagonistically in front of the Plain-Belly Sneetches, or Mrs. McCave who had 23 sons and named them all Dave. Finally, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book is about the snortiest snorers, the curious sleepwalking Crandalls, World-Champion Sleep-Talkers, and other somnambulant types--a perfect bedtime finale to a book that could keep youngsters entertained all night. (All ages) Product Description: Come join us for the celebration of the Cat's fortieth birthday. Following the stunning success of Six by Seuss, which has sold over 734,000 copies, is the delightful debut of A Hatful of Seuss--304 pages of wonderfully nonsensical vintage material. This elegant bind-up copy consists of complete versions of: Bartholomew and the Oobleck, If I Ran the Zoo, Horton Hears a Who, The Sneetches and Other Stories, and Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book. An exceptional gift to give and receive, A Hatful of Seuss is being offered as a full selection by The Book-of-the-Month Club (adult) for Christmas 1996. Product Details Reading level: Baby-Preschool Hardcover: 304 pages Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers (January 13, 1997) ISBN: 0679883886 Product Dimensions: 11.2 x 8.1 x 1.1 inches Shipping Weight: 2.4 pounds. List Price:30.00 Tight binding Clean pages Glossy cover great and economical, November 9, 2001 Reviewer: (Evanston, Il. United States) In this day and age when children's books are getting prohibitively expensive, this book is a great deal. While I knew the stories as a kid, I got to re-live them with my daughter with this book. She loves to read and re-read them with me, and she asks questions about the stories and the values that are in them. This is first rate stuff, the kind of thing that sticks in a child's mind for their entire life with their quirky detail, humor, and vivid stories you can identify with. So often, it is of individuals who find the courage to defy the authorities and mainstream opinion to do what they think is right. Warmly recommended. Some of the best of Dr. Seuss, November 16, 2004 Reviewer: (Long Beach, CA USA) Here's a rare book that gives you more than it promises. While it's titled "Five Favorite Dr. Seuss Stories," you actually get EIGHT stories. That's because there's three extra ones ("The Zax," "Too Many Daves," and "What Was I Scared Of?") included with "The Sneetches and Other Stories." It's hard to say enough good things about this book. You have a collection of delightful stories, fun wordplay ("I'll go to the far-away mountains of Tobsk / Near the river of Nobsk, and I'll bring back an obsk"), nice life lessons ("A person's a person no matter how small"), and some of the most imaginative artwork anywhere. I enjoy these as much as my kids (ages 3 and a half, and 2). The only negative I can think of is that the book is rather large for a child to easily rest on his or her lap. If you're reading to your child, that's less of an issue. If I HAD to pick, I'd say that "Sneetches" is our household's favorite story in this collection, followed by "Horton Hears a Who." But occasionally we'll opt for one of the others. It's good to have a selection of stories, because kids' interests change and they can suddenly decide a different one is the one they want to hear all the time. Most of these stories are good for reading to your kids right from birth, because the rhyming play and colorful pictures are fun no matter the level of comprehension. The one exception is "Bartholomew and the Oobleck," which is a bit more involved story that probably is best for ages five and up. The Sneetches, May 21, 2000 Reviewer: (Sacramento, CA) As a former grade school teacher, I wanted to take a moment to say that "The Sneetches" is the finest story in the annals of Children's Literature. It is another example of the Good Dr.'s "Einstein" capacities to teach about the insidiousness of bigotry in a manner which captivates both young and old alike. Anyone interested in promoting the commonalities which bind all of us together, will be delighted to have this story as a permanent piece of magic within his or her library. Classics, and not just for children, March 19, 1998 Reviewer: A reader Dr. Seuss wrote what are arguably the greatest children's books ever, and the five stories included in this volume are among his best. The rollicking rhymes, wonderful drawings, and adorable characters make these stories classics for everyone, and not just for children. Highly recommended to anyone with a sense of humor, and especially to those who grew up reading Dr. Seuss--refresh your memory of his work! Ack! Not all these together!! It's tooooo much!!, March 17, 1998 Reviewer: (California or New Hampshire, USA) Wow! So they're all stuck together now... wizard! Really, it's fantastic to see nearly my favorites (although Yerdle the Turtle ranks right up there, along with 1 Fish 2 Fish) all in one anthology. Can they do this! On the financial side, 'tis quite a great price for the five, particularly with the discount. Can't beat that. The imagination of the guy, Theodore Seuss Geisel, is beyond compare; the drawings are absolutely classic -- I remember looking at the intricate loops of the bridges and top hats of birds from the time I was three-years old or so. Really, the memories never go away. If I ran the Zoo is pure joy, along with the Sleep Book. I cannot recommend this collection more highly. Check out my Winnie the Pooh and Curious George items! I have books Galore!! I have adult and children's, fiction and nonfiction, hardcover and soft cover. I also have many educational books appropriate for homeschooling. If you are looking for a particular title or author, let me know because chances are that I have it! I run promotions in my store every month. See this month's featured promotions!
