Based on characters and a storyline developed by Dr. Seuss shortly before his death in 1991, this fabulous tale by poet Jack Prelutsky and artist Lane Smith bears all the hallmarks of a classic Dr. Seuss – bags of zany rhyme and humour, with bold and colourful artwork.
Focusing on the strange goings-on in Diffendoofer school, where kids are taught, among other things, yelling, listening and smelling, it highlights the importance of individuality and thinking for yourself! The book concludes with a fascinating look at how it came into being, with original sketches and handwritten notes by Dr. Seuss himself.
