This book purchase was not, as one might expect, for a child, but as a birthday gift for my middle-aged wife. We are both old enough to remember the original Suess books, and this was a delightful trip down memory lane. My wife LOVED it.
This copy was smaller and not nearly as long as the original, but nonetheless enjoyable and entertaining.
In typical Seuss fashion, the book rhymes its way through its birthday message.
