My family loves the brilliance that is Dr. Seuss, so I guess you could call this review biased from the get-go. Given that, I am still pleased with the seven stories collected in newly published volume of his work; ones that had only been seen in magazine of the 40s and 50s until now. I remember reading a couple of these stories as child, those being 'Tadd and Todd' and 'Gustav the Goldfish'. They also happen to be my favorites, but that may be be for sentimental reasons since they all are wonderful. My childrens' favorites are 'The Bippolo Seed' and 'The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga'. None of them disappoint however, and they stand as equals to any of Dr. Seuss' other short stories.
Dentist Charles Cohen painstaking collected these stories from the various magazines in which they were published. Conversion to book format much improved the layout and look of them and also allowed the illustrations to be presented in full color. I tip my hat to Dr. Cohen for his love of Dr. Seuss' vision and the work that went into tracking down these tales. If not for him, future generations might never have been able to experience this amazing collection.
