Read full description of the books:My nieces were over last weekend and they brought this book with them. My daughter and I both enjoy Dr. Seuss books. My daughter read it to the girls and later when they were busy, I had a look at it myself.
So apparently this is a never-before-seen Dr. Seuss book published in 2015. They say it was likely written somewhere in the late 1950's to early 1960's.
Brother and sister, Jay and Kay are off to the pet shop to pick out a new pet. There are dogs, cats, rabbits, monkeys and of course many other new and exciting animals to choose from. As the deadline approaches (they have to be home by noon), Jay and Kay struggle with which animal to choose. It shows how it can be really hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!
“Oh, boy! It is something to make a mind up!”
I can imagine as a child how things would go if I had been given the option of picking out the new family pet. I honestly believe it would take me FOREVER to pick which animal I wanted. I can't even imagine if on top of that both my brother and I had to agree on an animal. I'm pretty sure that after a certain amount of time my father would have yelled something like "FINE, You guys can't stop arguing, now there will be NO PET at all" and then he would storm out of the store.
My nieces really enjoyed the book and my daughter enjoyed reading it to them. Although my daughter and I both agreed that it wasn't a favorite. Something seemed a bit different and I was a little disappointed at the ending. I really do wonder why it wasn't published all those years ago. I guess we will never know for sure.
I don't think it was an awful book. But for me it was no Cat in the Hat, The Grinch who Stole Christmas, Green Eggs and Ham or any of my other favorites. However, I think any lover of Dr. Seuss may want it for their collection.
Read information about the authorTheodor Seuss Geisel was born 2 March 1904 in Springfield, MA. He graduated Dartmouth College in 1925, and proceeded on to Oxford University with the intent of acquiring a doctorate in literature. At Oxford he met Helen Palmer, who he wed in 1927. He returned from Europe in 1927, and began working for a magazine called Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at the time, submitting both cartoons and humorous articles for them. Additionally, he was submitting cartoons to Life, Vanity Fair and Liberty. In some of his works, he'd made reference to an insecticide called Flit. These references gained notice, and led to a contract to draw comic ads for Flit. This association lasted 17 years, gained him national exposure, and coined the catchphrase "Quick, Henry, the Flit!"
In 1936 on the way to a vaction in Europe, listening to the rhythm of the ship's engines, he came up with And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, which was then promptly rejected by the first 43 publishers he showed it to. Eventually in 1937 a friend published the book for him, and it went on to at least moderate success.
During WW II, Geisel joined the army and was sent to Hollywood. Captain Geisel would write for Frank Capra's Signal Corps Unit (for which he won the Legion of Merit) and do documentaries (he won Oscar's for Hitler Lives and Design for Death). He also created a cartoon called Gerald McBoing-Boing which also won him an Oscar.
In May of 1954, Life published a report concerning illiteracy among school children. The report said, among other things, that children were having trouble to read because their books were boring. This inspired Geisel's publisher, and prompted him to send Geisel a list of 400 words he felt were important, asked him to cut the list to 250 words (the publishers idea of how many words at one time a first grader could absorb), and write a book. Nine months later, Geisel, using 220 of the words given to him published The Cat in the Hat, which went on to instant success.
In 1960 Bennett Cerf bet Geisel $50 that he couldn't write an entire book using only fifty words. The result was Green Eggs and Ham. Cerf never paid the $50 from the bet.
Helen Palmer Geisel died in 1967. Theodor Geisel married Audrey Stone Diamond in 1968. Theodor Seuss Geisel died 24 September 1991.
