Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dr. Seuss is rolling over..., Dr. Seuss left this book in a drawer when he died. He obviously didn't think enough of it himself to publish it, but now that he's dead I guess anything's fair game. The illustrations are designed to fool you into thinking he did them, but he didn't. Yet this book says "by Dr. Seuss" on the cover just like The Lorax or Cat in the Hat. Deceitful.

From Our Editors

Fully animated by Hanna-Barbera, the Daisy-Head Mayzie characters on TV were inspired by and based on Dr. Seuss's own pencil sketches. The story of how little Mayzie learns that love is more important than fame and fortune makes an endearing morality tale for our time--for all ages. Full color
