Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! Summary


Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! (Dr. Seuss) by Dr. Seuss

Based on characters and a storyline developed by Dr. Seuss shortly before his death in 1991, this fabulous tale by poet Jack Prelutsky and artist Lane Smith bears all the hallmarks of a classic Dr. Seuss - bags of zany rhyme and humour, with bold and colourful artwork.

Focusing on the strange goings-on in Diffendoofer school, where kids are taught, among other things, yelling, listening and smelling, it highlights the importance of individuality and thinking for yourself! The book concludes with a fascinating look at how it came into being, with original sketches and handwritten notes by Dr. Seuss himself.

About Dr. Seuss


With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Dr. Seuss is a global bestseller, with over half a billion books sold worldwide. Jack Prelutsky has written more than thirty books of verse, edited several enormously popular anthologies (and been extensively anthologized himself), translated a number of books, and is always at work on the poems for at least three future books. He has lived in Boston, Albuquerque and Manhattan, but now lives in Seattle.
