9780001720411: Ten Tall Tales by Dr. Seuss

Here, combined in one volume, are ten of Dr. Seuss’s tallest tales, taken from three of his best-loved storybooks – The Sneetches, Yurtle the Turtle, and I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! Packed with zany pictures and hilarious rhymes, the tales make enchanting bedtime reading.

Children will be tickled pink to meet the Star-Bellied Sneetches – whose bellies bear stars – and their rivals the Plain-Bellied Sneetches – who have none upon thars! Or King Looie Katz, king of Zatzen-stein, who makes his courtiers follow him round so his beautiful tail won’t drag on the ground.

Then there is the little sister who thunks a glunk in The Glunk That Got Thunk and gets more than she bargained for. Or the stubborn Zax who would rather have highways built over them than budge in their tracks.

With Dr. Seuss’s unique combination of outlandish storytelling and bold illustrations, these and a host of other characters are hilariously brought to life in this wonderful book.

Review:

Dr Seuss's unique combination of outlandish storytelling and bold illustration has taught and entertained generations of young readers, delighting them with acid bright colour and irreverent verse.

In Ten Tall Tales 10 of Dr Seuss's best loved stories are pulled together in one hilarious volume, packed with the kind of subversive fantasy inhabited by the weird and wacky characters that only Dr Seuss could ever have dreamed of.

From the Star-Bellied Sneetches, who think they are so much better than their plain-bellied rivals, through to Gertrude McFuzz who realises the error of her vain ways after a series of disastrous events and the arrogant King Looie Katz who makes his subjects follow him around so that his tail won't drag along the ground. All Seuss life is there in its glorious, leap-off-the-page, laugh-out-loud glory.

A great gift for loyal fans, a wonderful introduction to the wacky world of Dr Seuss for youngsters who have yet to set foot into the madness and a trip down memory lane for adults who grew up with the master of zany illustration and outrageous rhyme. (Ages 5 to 8 years) --Susan Harrison
