About the Book
If laughter is the best medicine, then "You're Only Old Once! "is a delightful new defense against aging. Anyone who has ever submitted to a battery of medical tests will empathize with Dr. Seuss's Everyman as we follow him through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years Clinic. From the initial Eyesight and Solvency Test through all the stops along Stethoscope Row to finally being "properly pilled" and "properly billed," Dr. Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and wisdom. A perfect gift for anyone over 50!
From the Publisher
With his unmistakable rhymes and signature illustration style, Dr.
Seuss creates a classic picture-book ode to aging in You''re
Only Old Once! On a visit to "the Golden Years Clinic on
Century Square for Spleen Readjustment and Muffler Repair," readers
will laugh with familiar horror at the poking and prodding and
testing and ogling that go hand in hand with the dreaded
appellation of "senior citizen." Though Dr. Seuss is known for his
peerless work in books for children, this comical look at what
it''s like to get older is ideal for Seuss fans of advanced years.
In his own words, this is "a book for obsolete children." A perfect
gift for retirement, birthdays, and holidays!
