Quotes & Awards

  • “This book collects four stories, including the title tale featuring kind-hearted elephant Horton, originally published in Redbook magazine more than fifty years ago, and recently rediscovered by a Seuss historian. Like all of the good doctor’s stories, they are utterly timeless.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “Charles D. Cohen, the avid Seussian behind The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories, presents another four little-known manuscripts by Theodor Seuss Geisel…These archives suggest how Geisel tinkered with characters, developed his signature tetrameter, and commented on ethical issues, circa 1950.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “These ‘lost’ stories actually appeared in Redbook magazine in the 1950s and highlight characters we have come to know through other Dr. Seuss books…The history of each story is explained, and Cohen does a masterful job tying each into the text that originally introduced the character. This is a great book to add to a school or personal library, whether to add to an already extensive Seuss collection or as the first book in which younger children may be introduced to the fun and wisdom of Dr. Seuss.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “All of the entries in this follow-up to The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories involve a certain amount of sharp dealing…Fans both young and formerly young will be pleased—100 percent.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Dr. Seuss stories are irresistible, and this collection is no exception.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Narrator Chris Cox brings some of Dr. Seuss’ beloved characters—Horton, Marco, Officer Pat, and the Grinch—to new life in this collection of stories not previously published in book form. Cox narrates at a steady clip, letting the flow, rhythm, and cadence of Seuss’ words take center stage. He elongates words at times—for example, as the Kwuggerbug tells Horton the elephant to ‘streeeeeeetch out your trunk’—and emphasizes Seuss’ alliteration—‘tattered his toenails and bruised all his bones.’ Cox’s voice is youthful and playful, perfect for what Seuss calls ‘logical insanity.’ To complete the production, Seuss expert Charles Cohen provides insights on Seuss’ literary career.”

About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
