9780001720404: On Beyond Zebra

Packed with all the essential ingredients that have made Dr. Seuss so well-loved over the last 50 years – riotous rhyme, bizarre creatures, zany artwork, off-the-wall humour – On Beyond Zebra is vintage Seuss at its very best.

The book tells the tale of a young boy’s delight in his alphabet, which starts where our alphabet ends. Carrying on beyond Z for zebra, it begins with the letter Yuzz, for Yuzz-a-ma-Tuzz, a huge hairy creature with big blues eyes. This is followed by Wum, Um, Humpf, Fuddle and Glikk – Glikk as in Glikker, who lives in wild weeds and spends his time juggling with cinnamon seeds.

And so it goes on, full of wild imaginings and hilarious absurdities, helping to instill a love of words and spelling in all young children.

Review:

‘Dr. Seuss ignites a child’s imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses.”
The Express

From the Back Cover:

'
You'll be surprised
what there is to be found
Once you go beyond Z
And start poking around!

'

And so our young hero introduces us to a wild new alphabet that helps us spell the names if the strangest creatures imaginable!

There is Yuzz for Yuzz-a-ma-Tuzz, a huge hairy creature with big blue eyes. Then there is Glikk for Glikker, who lives in wild weeds, and spends his time juggling with cinnamon seeds. Or Yekk for Yekko, who howls in an underground grotto in Gekko.

It makes you realise, if an imaginary alphabet can be this much fun, maybe the real one can be too!

In this outlandish tale, a young boy delights in explaining how' his 'alphabet starts where 'Our' alphabet ends. Carrying on beyond Z for Zebra, it begins with the letter Yuzz – for Yuzz-a-ma-Tuzz – followed by Wum, Um, Humpf, Fuddle and Glikk. And so it goes on, full of wild imaginings and hilarious absurditites, helping to instill a love of words and spelling into all young children.

Packed with the essential ingredients that have made Dr. Seuss so well-loved over the past 50 years – riotous rhyme, bizarre creatures, zany artwork – this is vintage Seuss at its very best!
