Review via Cracking the Cover

Each of these tales is a rhythmical delight with the tongue-twisting text we’ve come to expect from Dr. Seuss. The illustrations are wacky, playful and colorful, but there aren’t as many as readers are used to with Seuss’ other books. That means there’s lots of block text, and that may a bit discouraging for younger readers. The good news, however, is that Seuss’ writing evokes images on it’s own and each of these tales is sure to spark imagination.

An introduction to the collection traces the history of all seven stories and Seuss expert Charles Cohen adds his expertise on the recurrence of themes throughout Seuss’ work. This section is solid text. And while interesting, it will most likely be skipped by young fans and appreciated by their parents later on.
