In this Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, join Bartholomew Cubbins in Dr. Seuss's classic tale of one king's magical mishap. Bored with rain, sun, fog, and snow, King Derwin of Didd summons his royal magicians to create something new and exciting to fall from the sky. What he gets is a storm of sticky green globs called Oobleck, which soon causes a royal mess. But with the assistance of the wise page boy Bartholomew, the king (along with young readers) learns that the simplest words can sometimes solve the biggest problems.

About the Book

Illus. in color by the author. An ooey-gooey, green oobleck was not exactly what the king had in mind when he ordered something extra-special from his royal magicians.

About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL-aka Dr. Seuss-is one of the most beloved children's book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You'll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss's long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot's Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

From Our Editors

Kings, it seems, get bored quite easily. And King Derwin is one of those kings. He's not happy with the boring old things that fall from the sky. So he turns to his royal magicians to come up with something more interesting than the blah snow and rain. Boy, do they ever! In fact, when Ooblek first falls from the heavens, the sticky substance covers absolutely everything and no one knows what to do. Enter the pageboy Bartholemew who's figured out the solution to all the king's problems. Dr. Seuss' Bartholomew and the Ooblek will slime you and have you coming back for more gooey pleasure!

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
