Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - 'And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street' - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only 'The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
Prasie for 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!': "...my favourite of Dr. Seuss's books... not least for its combination of mastery, mystery and possibility." - The Guardian "The celebrated whimsicalist who has given young readers and gigglers so many outrageous adventures over the years has opted for a more purposeful stroll in his latest outing." - New York Times "One book that has proved to be popular for graduates of all ages since it was first published in 1990" - New York Times

Another classic from the master of rhyme. This book has an intriguing dark undertone in parts, showing the darker and lighter side of life in contrast. The rhyme is fantastic and my baby just loves listening to me read this story. The pictures, as always, are interesting and quirky, the use of contrast, colour and pattern appealing well to children of all ages, and even the adult reader! A fun read for all.
