This is the amazing tale of Gerald McCloy, who “didn’t talk words – he went Boing Boing instead!” Only capable from the earliest age of making strange noises, young Gerald is the bane of his parents’ lives. Finally, he runs away, little realising his “Boing Boings” will make his fortune!
Nearly fifity years ago, Dr. Seuss was asked by a friend at United Productions of America to come up with an idea for an animated cartoon that was new and different – more than just the usual cats chasing mice. And that’s how Gerald McBoing Boing came into being.
The cartoon attracted legions of fans in America, and went on to win an Academy Award in 1951.
Available only briefly in book form in the USA at the time of the movie’s release, it has finally re-emerged with all its zest and zany humour in tact, ready to delight a new generation of Dr. Seuss fans.

Nearly fifty years ago, Theodor Geisel – known to the world even then as Dr. Seuss – met up with a friend who worked for a new animation studio called United Productions of America. "UPA has a fresh outlook," a friend said. Could Seuss write something new and different for them? Something that had a little more going for it than the usual cats chasing mice?
"Just suppose," Seuss replied "there was a little kid who didn't speak words but only weird sounds?" And that's how 'Gerald McBoing Boing' came into being. Brought to life by UPA as an animated cartoon, it attracted legions of fans a rave reviews, and it went on to win an Academy Award in 1951.
Available in book form only briefly at the time of the movie's release, here it is again – unique, delectable, vintage Seuss.
Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his 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 hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
