Truly an excellent bunch of stories. Each one carries a moral, holding typical Seussian wisdom. Sure to be just as much a classic as any of his others.

Delightful! Perfect read-aloud stories. When I first opened the book I noted that there were a lot of words and few illustrations on each page. Not what I usually look for in a book that I intend to use for the library's story time program. Any negative feelings I had disappeared before the end of the first page. The stories are enough to hold the children's attention without a lot of page turning and each story is better than the one before it. If you can only afford to buy one children's book, this is the one! After reviewing the library's copy, I ordered 3 copies - one for me, one for my grandchildren and one as a gift.

For thirty years, I have carried my children's Dr. Seuss collection to every state and country we have lived. As we await the arrival of our first grandchild, I am very excited to add "The Bippolo Seed" to that collection. We have reserved our copy due to come out at the end of September!

Product details 72 pages Random House Books for Young Readers - English 9780375864353 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "This volume collects seven joyous Seuss stories that were published in Redbook in 1950 and 1951 but had never appeared in book form. In an insightful introduction, Seussian scholar Charles D. Cohen notes that Seuss wrote these tales at a transitional point in his career, when he grasped the importance of using the sounds of words to hook children on reading. The stories' rhymed couplets are pitch-perfect, the verse's rhythm as snappy as in any of Seuss's better-known works. In the title story, a duck and a cat's greed spins out of control as they imagine everything that they'll wish for from a magical seed. In 'Steak for Supper,' an outlandish menagerie follows a boy home to dine: 'A Nupper for supper! A Gritch! And a Grickle!/ And also an Ikka! Oh, boy! What a pickle!' These creatures and others are portrayed with Seuss's trademark exaggeration and whimsy. The limitations of the source material are occasionally apparent — the longer stories overcrowd certain pages with text, the artwork sometimes feeling stretched to fit the format. Regardless, fans old and young will deem these 'lost' stories a tremendous find." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Review" by , "Look for millions of Seuss fans with bright shiny faces! The buffed-up illustrations look brand new, and...the writing is as fresh, silly and exhilarating as it must have been when first seen. The good Doctor may be dead these 20 years, but he's still good for splendid surprises."
"Review" by , "Perfect combinations of pictures and stories that will appeal to young readers as well as their parents."
"Review" by , "Features the kinds of nonsense that blend right in with The Stinky Cheese Man and SpongeBob SquarePants."
"Review" by , "There is simply never enough Dr. Seuss....the master himself...lives on through his wonderful words of wisdom, delivered in delicious rhymes and creative characters."
"Review" by , "The stories' rhymed couplets are pitch-perfect, the verse's rhythm as snappy as in any of Seuss's better-known old and young will deem these 'lost' stories a tremendous find."
