Dr. Seuss has delighted several generations of children with his funny, catchy, and distinctive books. Now fans of his work, both young and old, can enjoy this unique pop-up creation which is packed not only with written and illustrated excerpts from seven of Dr. Seuss's most popular books, but it is also full of surprising feats of paper magic. There are pop ups of all kinds, fold outs, tabs to pull, dials to turn, and much more.

The seven books highlighted and captured in this volume are: The Cat in the Hat; Green Eggs and Ham; Sneetches and other stories; I can read with my eyes shut; The Cat on the Hat Comes Back; Fox in Socks; and One fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. For each book the essence of what Dr. Seuss was saying in the story is caught on just a few pages.

For a pop-up collector this book is a real treasure.
