The very first title from the iconic Dr. Seuss gets a brand new look on its 80th birthday, introducing Marco's crazy carnival of creatures to a new generation of readers.
"A plain horse and wagon on Mulberry Street grows into a story that no one can beat!"
In this delightful tale, Young Marco allows his imagination to run riot as he travels home from school one day, to the extent that a horse and cart is soon transformed into a chaotic carnival of colourful creatures.
First published 80 years ago, this new look birthday edition brings a worldwide favourite to a whole new generation.
Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his 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.
