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

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

    " 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. "

    " Yay! 1st Edition Print! "

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.
