Description

It's the literary equivalent of buried treasure The audiobook edition features a cast of celebrity narrators who bring these stories to life. Readers include: "THE BIPPOLO SEED"," " narrated by Neil Patrick Harris"THE RABBIT, THE BEAR, AND THE ZINNIGA-ZANNIGA, """narrated by Anjelica Huston"GUSTAV, THE GOLDFISH, """narrated by Jason Lee"TADD AND TODD"," """narrated by Joan Cusack"STEAK, FOR SUPPER"," """narrated by Edward Herrmann"THE STRANGE SHIRT SPOT, "narrated by William H. Macy"THE GREAT HENRY McBRIDE, """narrated by Peter Dinklage Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss. Originally published in magazines between 1950 and 1951, 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 explains the significance these seven stories have, not only as lost treasures, but as transitional stories in Dr. Seuss's career. 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

display_description Overview: As unique and funny to read as all of Dr. Seuss' work, these "lost" stories hold their own beside The Lorax, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and The Cat in the Hat. Brought together for the first time in a book, with a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection that Seuss fans of all ages won't want to miss! These stories, originally published in magazines between 1950 and 1951, 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, Dr. Charles Cohen - Seuss collector and expert - explains the significance these seven stories have, not only as lost treasures, but as transitional stories in Dr. Seuss's career.
