A perennial favorite and a perfect gift for anyone starting a new phase in their life!

Dr. Seuss tackles the struggles of everyday life’s—difficult people, bullies, bad weather, political unrest, even crowds—in the rhyming picture book 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." But 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. A funny story that can be read purely for entertainment, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew is ideal for sparking discussions. It’s message—that the best way to deal with an obstacle is by tackling it head-on—makes this an perfect gift for all ages and occasions—especially graduations! Available for a limited time only with a peel-off 50th Anniversary Sticker on the cover, Seuss fans of all ages will find Solla Sollew an inspiring book to read again and again.

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.
