Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss, originally published in magazines between 1950 and 1951. In an Introduction to the collection, Cohen explains the significance these seven stories have, not only as lost treasures, but as transitional stories in Dr. Seuss''s career. Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
It’s the literary equivalent of buried treasure—seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss! Originally published in magazines between 1948 and 1959, they include “The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga,” about a rabbit who is saved from a bear via a single eyelash; “Gustav the Goldfish,” an early, rhyming version of the Beginner Book A Fish out of Water; “Tadd and Todd,” a tale passed down on a photocopy to generations of twins; “Steak for Supper,” about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner; “The Bippolo Seed,” in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision; “The Strange Shirt Spot,” the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back; and “The Great Henry McBride,” about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies were bested only by those of Dr. Seuss himself.

For each story, Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen offers a brief introduction that explores recurrent themes and images, such as fish and twins. With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan will want to miss!
Originally only published in magazines in the early 1950s, these seven wonderful Dr. Seuss stories are in book form at long last! With the beginnings of that signature Seussian style of rhyming and zany illustrations, the stories include "Steak for Supper," with lots of wonderful made-up words, "Gustav, the Goldfish," about a boy who overfeeds his goldfish with hilarious results, and "Strange Shirt Spot," a precursor to the classic, THE CAT IN THE HAT. With a introduction by Charles D. Cohen.


"[T]he writing is as fresh, silly and exhilarating as it must have been when first seen." (Starred review) 09/01/011
