These are fabulous stories: inevitably some favourites are omitted, and other inclusions are questionable. (I could point out a couple puzzlers.) In some cases, the layout has been condensed: nothing left out (that I could tell), but images shrunk to fit several on a page, when the original was a full-page spread.

But these are quibbles, it's great to share these with R & W in a solid hardbound edition.

Nowhere, that I recall, do the essays explain a most surprising fact: I've been pronouncing his name wrong all along:

You’re wrong as the deuce
And you shouldn’t rejoice
If you’re calling him Seuss.
He pronounces it Soice.

Or so claims his Dartmouth roommate and fellow college humourist, Alexander Liang. ( )

A collection of classic works by Dr. Seuss, guaranteed to bring back fond memories. ( )

A great collection of 13 stories written by Dr. Seuss compiled into one book. The book begins by telling who Dr. Seuss was and showing pictures throughout his life. Before each one of the stories is an essay written by different individuals either talking about the story or about Dr. Seuss himself. One of the essays was written by Audrey Geisel (the wife of Dr. Seuss). The essays bring another level to the stories written by Dr. Seuss. A great book to add to your collection. ( )

This book is remarkable. 13 of Dr. Seuss's most well known stories, all comprised in one edition. This is a treasure trove for those who love children's literature, and especially for those with children. The greatest dynamic of the book, the illustrations, are completely retained in this edition as well.

I am somewhat surprised this book isn't more popular than what it is. ( )
