I Had Trouble Getting To Solla Sollew: 50th Anniversay Edition

by Seuss

Random House Children's Books | August 12, 1965 | Hardcover

I Had Trouble Getting To Solla Sollew: 50th Anniversay Edition is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.

Dr. Seuss tackles troubles—bullies, terrain, weather—in the rhyming classic I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. When our hero stubs his toe, he decides to find a less troublesome place to live. Soon he’s off on a journey “to the City of Solla Sollew, on the banks of the beautiful River Wah-Hoo, where they never have troubles! At least, very few.” However, between his encounters with the Midwinter Jicker and the Perilous Poozer of Pompelmoose Pass, he soon finds out that confronting his problems might actually be easier than running away from them.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dr. Seuss' best book ever This book in on my short list of favorites of any kind. It is right up there with Tom Sawyer, Hawaii, Captains Courageous, Gone with the Wind, ... So if you want to entertain the little ones and plant a seed in their minds that will do them some good when they decide how to live their lives, there is only one book better to read to them from. I had trouble in getting to Solla Sollew shares insight most of us take a lifetime to learn. Trying to avoid our troubles only leads to more trouble. The things we acquire and use to cope with troubles are more trouble than aid. Not everyone who offers to help actually helps you. People who depend on you can seldom be depended upon. And, the road to Utopia is eternally closed for construction. So for all of us who have been surrounded by "more Poozers than I'd ever seen" the Motto "Now my troubles will have troubles with Me!" is the way it will be.
