The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is one of the most perfect books to give a young child this Christmas as parent and child can share it with equal enthusiasm. Seuss has created the most entertaining rhyming text that is both clever and laugh out loud funny on every page and alongside the zany illustrations will enlighten even the most reluctant reader. So whether you were brought up on Green Eggs and Ham or one of the other formidable Seuss books or not, do share this treasury with a new generation – we’re confident it will encourage reading and give new experiences to all who read it. A book to treasure.

Synopsis

Dr. Seuss A Classic Treasury by Dr. Seuss

This is the perfect gift - five of Dr. Seuss' best-loved tales in one attractive book. A wonderful gift, featuring five of the hilarious classics that made Dr. Seuss one of the best-loved children's authors: "The Cat in the Hat", "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back", "Green Eggs and Ham", "Fox in Socks", and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic, "Cat in the Hat", and ranking among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.

About the Author

Dr. Seuss

“I look at the world through the wrong end of a telescope.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

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 millions of children learn to read.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a brewer and park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England (where he met his first wife Helen Palmer), he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children`s books and his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937.

His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books collectively known as Beginner Books. In all Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 children’s books during a career that spanned over 50 years, picking up numerous awards, including two Emmy awards for television and a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation along the way.
