Mc Elligot's Pool is truly a Seuss classic from the distant era before even The Cat In The Hat. But the boy is all optimism: what if the pool is deeper than anyone thinks?"(Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr It's a single poetic variation on the theme of adult skepticism that's no match for childhood faith and daydreaming. (Well, I might."The moral of the story is straightforward:"If I wait long enough, if I'm patient and cool,/ Who knows what I'll catch in Mc Elligot's pool?"I might catch an eel.) A extended twisting eel with a great deal of strange bends. What if it connects to an underground stream that flows beneath the town to the sea? It depends. A tiny boy is fishing inside the tiny, unpromising Mc Elligot's Pool, a puddle that (as a passing farmer informs our diminutive hero) is nothing but a hole where people dispose of their junk. Might not all sorts of fish then swim up the stream and be caught right here? And, oddly enough, with a head at both ends!
