Description
It's the literary equivalent of buried treasure—Seuss scholar and collector Charles Cohen here presents seven rarely seen stories for all ages by Dr. Seuss, originally published in magazines from 1948–59. In "The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga," a rabbit is saved from a bear with a single eyelash; "Gustav the Goldfish" is an early, rhymed version of the Beginner Book A Fish Out of Water; and "Tadd and Todd" is a tale that has circulated via photocopy to generations of twins. Here too is "Steak for Supper," about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner, and "The Strange Shirt Spot," which was the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back. The title story tells about a scheming feline who leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision, while "The Great Henry McBride" is about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of Seuss himself. In an introduction to the collection, Cohen traces the history of these stories, demonstrating Theodore Seuss Geisel's intentional development of the style we associate with Dr. Seuss today. Cohen also explores themes here—the importance of the imagination, for example, or the perils of greed—that recur in better-known Seuss stories. With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan will want to miss.
