Two giants of children's publishing - Dr. Seuss and Quentin Blake - come together for this joyous celebration of life.
Part of the stylish and collectable Essential Picture Book Classics range, this book is full of Dr. Seuss's trademark humour, illustrated beautifully by Quentin Blake.
The book celebrates the vitality of life - with everyone getting UP to enjoy life, from whales to waiters, girls, boys and alligators! Except for one character, who in the charming ending, is resolutely not getting UP!
Every day is a great day to read `Great Day for UP'!

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of 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 known as Beginner Books.
