Of course I read this as a teenager, and I'm sure I loved it then, but I just re-read as an adult and it didn't dazzle me or excite me like I expect Dr. Seuss books to do. It was cute, but not cute enough for me. This sounds like a silly complaint, but it had tons of words, lol! Usually Dr. Seuss books are a little long, but each page is kind of short and sweet, kind of a little poem to itself almost. This didn't feel that way to me. The illustrations were good, but I think what I love about Dr. Seuss is the silliness. There are a few silly things, starting with a daisy growing out of the head of Mayzie, but I really like all the weird creatures and inventions of Dr. Seuss, and this didn't have very many. Like I said, it's cute, but not his best, but you still have to read it, it's Dr. Seuss after all!

Sans Seuss freaked me out as a kid. Except Horton. I liked Horton for some reason. Cute review!

Shelly Thanks Sans! I have always love Dr. Seuss! I used to be able to recite Green Eggs and Ham as a kid! I can see how he might have freaked you out, but I love his silly creatures!
