If I Ran the Circus
|Series:||Level 3 Yellow Back Bks.|
In this delightful tale, Morris McGurk fantasizes about all the weird and wonderful creatures he'd introduce to the local circus if he was in charge, from the Spotted Atrocious - a beast most ferocious - to the Drum-Tummied Snumm from the country of Frumm. This new cover reprint features the distinctive red border design which instantly identifies the work with such classics as The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Written in rollicking rhyme with wacky illustrations it introduces young children to a host of uniquely Seussian creatures and funny people.
Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books.
