'Not a Doctor' Read the New Yorker article on Seuss Seuss was an artist with all the usual cluelessness. as the context for a genius which 'he did not know that he knew'. People were a mystery, but he zeroed in on specific features and his aim was unerring..He really neither knew nor liked real kids (and had none) but he knew what they wanted.

Book description
"There's a Wocket in my Pocket!" is a story written by Dr. Seuss, which means it is another example of a story that makes no sense, but is fun to read. The story is silly that includes rhymes to help add to the silliness. Through this story, children will also practice word identifications, meaning being able to find words that are simple in spelling and sounding. Children will enjoy this story and its made up words.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394829204, Hardcover)

There's a Wocket in my Pocket is yet another prime catch in the vast sea of delectable Dr. Seuss books. It's difficult to find a Dr. Seuss book one wouldn't recommend highly, and this is no exception. Seuss's simple rhymes are consistently as amusing as they are useful; his books are bastions of creative nonsense that simultaneously encourage the joy of wordplay.

This edition of the 1974 treasure features vibrant full-color illustrations, with the added bonus of a virtually indestructible board-book format. Kids can hunt for the zamp in the lamp, the jertain behind the curtain, even the nooth grush on the toothbrush, and no matter how exuberant their exploring gets, the book will remain intact for the next reading. (Ages 0 to 4)
