Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in 1973, was a letter outlining his hopes of finding "a great color artist who will not be dominated by me." The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text about feelings and moods as part of the "first book ever to be based on beautiful illustrations and sensational color." The quest for an artist finally ended—after the manuscript languished for more than two decades—at the paint brushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning, expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kicking its heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, and an angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and emotions what Oh, the Places You'll Go! does for the human life cycle. Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings. With Johnson and Fancher's atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off the pages, Dr. Seuss's vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book is bound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors.  

Synopsis:

What color is your mood?

On a really good day, Jamie feels purple

like the first bite of a juicy cold plum.

And with a crayon in his hand, Jamie eases into a green feeling

like a dragon dancing through a jungle

made of green jello.

But when his brothers push him around and make fun of his drawings, Jamie feels gray

like a dark storm brewing.

What will it take to put Jamie back in a bright-feeling mood?

Through Jamie, young readers will learn to describe how they’re feeling in a unique way.

Synopsis:

Using a spectrum of colors and a menagerie of animals, Dr. Seuss presents a completely new and different kind of book about feelings and moods. Only one of five books written by Dr. Seuss that he didn't illustrate, "My Many Colored Days" depicts large-scale paintings by Johnson and Fancher which seem to burst off the page, appealing to both the innocent young reader and the most sophisticated senior. Full color.

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.

In a departure from the well-known, fantastical Seuss illustrations and poetry, My Many Colored Days uses the paintings of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher - broad brush strokes and Crayola color - to explore the concept of feelings. Simple and direct, Seuss's rhyme helps kids think about their feelings without reproach for the "negative" ones, suggesting that we can think of our emotional selves as we do a colorful paint palette. A refreshing connection and reminder for adults, as well!
