Fans of the legendary Dr. Seuss are in for a treat-a volume of four "fresh" stories by Dr. Seuss featuring some of his most beloved characters. There's kindly Horton the elephant, who agrees to help a tricky kwuggerbug; and the Grinch who isn't trying to stop Christmas, but instead trying to sell some string! There's also Marco, the imaginative little boy from Mulberry Street; and Officer Pat, a true hometown hero. These stories were originally published in magazines in the 1950s and all but forgotten about. But thanks to the efforts of Seuss expert Charles D. Cohen, who writes the forward explaining the origin of each story, these gems have been rediscovered to delight a new generation of readers. Each story reminds readers of the many things that make Seuss stories such classics: clever rhymes, inventive story lines, and illustrations that can only come from the mind of Dr. Seuss. It's destined to be a new classic on the bedtime bookshelf!
