Harper Collins, 2016. ISBN 9780008131272
Dr Seuss. Rhyme. Originally published in magazines in 1950's this collection of lesser known Dr Seuss stories will be enjoyed by his fans. They contain the usual whimsy and fun, with simple rhyming patterns, and his created words. Dr Seuss manages to hide some more serious ideas underneath the nonsense, for those prepared to look.
This is definitely worth adding to a Seuss collection. Horton appears and is tricked by a pesky bug; a school child explains the reason for his late arrival at school; a policeman on the beat saves the community from disaster and the Grinch proves that he is a little sneaky, but a good salesman.
