In this delightful tale, Morris McGurk dreams about staging the world’s greatest show, packed with the most tremendous, stupendous acts ever seen, from the Spotted Atrocious – a beast most ferocious – to the Drum-Tummied Snumm from the country of Frumm.
This delightful book forms part of the second stage in HarperCollins’ major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of 10 more titles in August 2003, such all-time favourites as ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’, ‘Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?’ and ‘Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book’ boast bright new covers that incorporate much-needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. ‘If I Ran the Circus’ belongs to the Yellow Back Book range.

“Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses.” – The ExpressAbout the Author:
Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books, and his first book – ‘And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street’ – was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only ‘The Cat in the Hat’, published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
