This collection of five complete, illustrated Dr. Seuss classics is a"hatful,"but you'd have to have a Cat-in-the-Hat-sized chapeau to include all the treasures in this hefty book. In If I Ran the Zoo, young Gerald Mc Grew decides he would make a couple of changes if he ran the zoo--including the acquisition of more unusual beasts (such as an Elephant-Cat) from locations"really out-of-the-way. For example, Mc Grew proclaims,"I'll hunt inside the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant/With helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant,/And capture a fine fluffy bird called the Bustard/Who only eats custard with sauce made of mustard. (1954) , The Sneetches and Other Stories (1961) , and Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book (1962 ). In Bartholomew and also the Oobleck, a non-rhyming Seuss story, prepare for an eyeful of green goo."Furthermore to the potentially unsettling notion of traversing continents in search of wild beasts to trap and cage, there are a couple of dated references that parents might want to preview before reading to kids. Within its pages you'll find Theodor Seuss Geisel's exuberant creations Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949) , If I Ran the Zoo (1950) , Horton Hears a Who!"
As for the rest of this delightful collection, Horton Hears a Who! is a tale that teaches us"a person's a person, no matter how modest. (All ages) Finally, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book is about the snortiest snorers, the curious sleepwalking Crandalls, World-Champion Sleep-Talkers, and other somnambulant types--a perfect bedtime finale to a book that could keep youngsters entertained all night."And of course, you may remember the Star-Belly Sneetches, the"snooty old smarties"who pranced antagonistically in front in the Plain-Belly Sneetches, or Mrs. Mc Cave who had 23 sons and named them all Dave.
