Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 2/19/2014

    " I loved this as a child, it is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle Neldon | 2/17/2014

    " I'm not usually a fan of these books but this was a good story. The ending surprised me because it was a bit dark, especially for Dr. Seuss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 2/9/2014

    " Well gosh. I think the uninvited 'horn-guests' would have been better off if they'd been (politely) asked to leave. Thidwick shouldn't be teaching kids to be a doormat! And please note, these are antlers, not horns. Antlers shed & regrow annually, horns are permanent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/3/2014

    " Another great Dr. Seuss classic! See what happens when you're too nice - people walk all over you, quite literally in Thidwick's case... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ms. Sapkarov | 1/31/2014

    " Loved it until I neared the end - with the hunters and their guns. Oh but there was a shred of hope as Thidwick shed his horns. But the other animals still got stuffed. Would have made a great read-aloud if not for the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat Kent | 1/29/2014

    " now i have to write a 10 page paper on this book. WHY GOD "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy Stimpson | 1/16/2014

    " A great read for codependents. Also those freeloaders deserved to be stuffed because they didn't raise a finger to save themselves or the moose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 1/2/2014

    " Okay its a frickin' Dr Seus book, but it was a favorite when I was little, had to put it on the list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 11/2/2013

    " Another awesome book by Dr. Suess. This one has a beautiful meaning too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 10/29/2013

    " I live that the hunters are a bunch of pompous white guys from Harvard. My Harvard friends were not amused. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 10/27/2013

    " The sacrifice of kindness shows forth and works out for the best in the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 9/23/2013

    " A little girl I babysit asked me to read this to her the other day. I had never heard of this one, and I'm always down for a moral lesson from Dr. Seuss. I love the simplicity of his messages and the whimsy of the stories that teach them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 8/11/2013

    " A good story about treating your guests right even when they are more like pests. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liam | 7/18/2013

    " So amazing because animals wanted his horns and one day he found out that horns can come off and new ones could grow. A good story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 6/20/2013

    " The horrifying perils of politeness and thoughtfulness will keep you up at night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 McLean | 4/7/2013

    " I was disappointed to realise that what I had remembered as a cute little story about animals was actually a kids' version of Ayn Rand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roslynn | 4/3/2013

    " One of life's best lessons! And one of Poopa's favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Earl Dizon | 9/27/2012

    " "Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose" had a silly, fun premise but none of the characters were likable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/15/2012

    " This 1948 Seuss book is the ultimate metaphor for unwelcome houseguests, with an ending that might have inspired Roald Dahl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 4/26/2012

    " This is a great book about being nice to others but at the same time, knowing when enough is enough. It shows that its important to have a big heart but at the same time confront your friends. Rhyming is always great for young kids too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 3/23/2012

    " If you want to read Rand's Atlas Shrugged to your kids this is the books you are looking for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ginny | 12/10/2011

    " This would have been an incredibly cute book....if not for the violent end. Boy, they sure wrote 'em different back in 1948! I had a lot of explaining at the end of this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie | 8/27/2011

    " Dr. Seuss has written another great children's book. "

    " Shows them how you can stand up for yourself. You can do a lesson about being assertive. Funny story. Being aware of people's feelings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 4/12/2011

    " I'm not usually a fan of these books but this was a good story. The ending surprised me because it was a bit dark, especially for Dr. Seuss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 2/27/2011

    " Loved it until I neared the end - with the hunters and their guns. Oh but there was a shred of hope as Thidwick shed his horns. But the other animals still got stuffed. Would have made a great read-aloud if not for the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 12/7/2010

    " I enjoyed this book about a moose who wanted to help everyone out....until the last page where all the animals from his antlers were in the hunting club all stuffed!! Not good for a childrens book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 12/5/2010

    " Dr. Seuss writes about a moose whose antlers unwillingly become the home of several woodland creatures. Political message: intruding on the environment, anti-hunting, being a host. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 4/13/2010

    " Yay! 1st Edition Print! "
