Review

Praise for ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’:

“…my favourite of Dr. Seuss’s books… not least for its combination of mastery, mystery and possibility.” – The Guardian

“The celebrated whimsicalist who has given young readers and gigglers so many outrageous adventures over the years has opted for a more purposeful stroll in his latest outing.” – New York Times

”One book that has proved to be popular for graduates of all ages since it was first published in 1990” – New York Times

From the Inside Flap

Illus. in full color. "Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain, ' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times (grinning purple elephants, floating golden castles) and the bad (deep blue wells of confusion). Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act, ' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"--(starred) "Booklist. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Purchased for 5-year old twins (along with other Dr Seuss books) and they have been a hit. Complex enough to challenge their reading skills but easy enough for the parent to break it down for them. Item was packaged well and the book delivered in mint condition.

I liked cat in the Hat and If I ran a zoo - but not too keen on this one - dare I say a bit TOO weird!
