Congratulations! |Today is your day. |You're off to Great Places! |You're off and away! (from the first line)
Illus. in full color. "Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain, ' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times (grinning purple elephants, floating golden castles) and the bad (deep blue wells of confusion). Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act, ' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"--(starred) "Booklist.

Full color.
Annotation:
A young boy's travels through life inspire his self-esteem and self-determination. Colorful illustrations accompany the text.A celebration of the joys, challenges, and even the disappointments of life, as well as an ode to self-esteem and self-determination, OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO! follows the adventures of a young, yellow-clad boy setting out on an amazing journey. "98 and percent guaranteed" that he will do well, the child experiences everything imaginable, from a smooth flight across a bright pastel patchwork field to facing down a furry green beast in an orange cave. Crazily patterned, strangely built, and oddly inhabited lands mimic the ups and downs of his voyage. Colorful, wildly imaginative illustrations accompany the text of this book, which is often seen as the perfect graduation gift--for those setting forth on adventures from kindergarten to graduate school and beyond.

Praise

"Although this does not rank among the best of Seuss' books, its stress on self-esteem and imaginative artwork make it a good addition to picture-book collections." 3/1/1990
