Description


It's the literary equivalent of buried treasure!

- Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss. Originally published in magazines between 1948 and 1959, they include;

- The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga (about a rabbit who is saved from a bear with a single eyelash!)
- Gustav the Goldfish (an early, rhymed version of the Beginner Book A Fish Out of Water)
- Tadd and Todd (a tale passed down via photocopy to generations of twins)
- Steak for Supper (about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner)
- The Bippolo Seed (in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision)
- The Strange Shirt Spot (the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back)
- and The Great Henry McBride (about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of the real Dr. Seuss himself).

In an introduction to the collection, Cohen traces the evolution of characters in these early stories to characters in later Seuss works, and explores recurrent themes and images, such as fish and twins. With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan (whether scholar or second-grader) will want to miss!

Why Our Experts Love It


Dr Seuss is one of our FAVORITE authors and this book has all his 'lost' stories that you have probably never heard of...a great and whacky Seussian discovery!


  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time.  Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information.  Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language. They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object.  In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity.  We want children of all ages to hear ‘adult, complex sentences’ so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • Infants – 2 year olds: point to the pictures and emphasize the name of each picture (one word at a time).  Your intonation and melody plays an important role in your child’s attention to the book at this age.
  • 2-3 year olds – read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story.  This also allows them to be active “readers”.
  • 3-4 year olds – ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first.  Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds – at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make.  Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest.  At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
  • 5-6 year olds – Your child will begin to read at this age, generally by memorization of sight words.  Keep a running list of the words that your child successfully recognizes.  They will feel great pride as the list grows longer and longer.
