Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. 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. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

Synopsis:

This slip-cased set of five classic books by Dr. Seuss features his most famous characters--the Cat, the Grinch, Yertle, Horton, and the Lorax! (To be precise, the set includes an oversized, unjacketed edition of The Cat in the Hat exclusively available in this collection; a foil-covered edition of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!; and regular full-size editions of Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories; Horton Hears a Who!; and The Lorax.) These five picture books are among the most beloved children's books ever written and they're essential for starting a young person's library. A perfect gift for holidays, baby showers, and special occaisions of all kinds, the set comes packaged inside a super-sturdy, reinforced case. Introduce these old friends to a young child--or give the box to a whole family--and start a relationship that will last a lifetime!

Synopsis:

Cat fanciers rejoice! Available for the first time is a picture book-size, jacketed edition of The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss--the classic, deliciously anarchic story of a giant cat in a hat whose unexpected arrival turns a dull, rainy day into a madcap adventure. Although written for beginning readers, The Cat in the Hat makes an ideal read-aloud for children of all ages. Highly collectible, it's a purr-fect gift for Seuss fans of all ages!

About the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!

In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages.  Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
