This fabulous compilation of four of Dr. Seuss's most wacky tales, packed with colourful zany pictures, rollicking rhyme and off-the-wall humour, is guaranteed to make reading fun!
`Hop on Pop' introduces readers to a range of simple rhyming words, all used in short, funny sentences.
The nonsense escalates in `Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!' as the reluctant Marvin is driven to bed by whatever means he can muster, be it on stilts, by mail, or even on lion's tail.
`Oh, the Thinks you can Think!' encourages readers to explore the fantasy world of their own imagination, offering surreal combinations of things to think up.
Finally, `I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!', featuring the famous Cat in the Hat, offers even more fun to be had by reading with Dr. Seuss!

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.
