Terrific Tuesday: More “new” Dr. Seuss!


At first we thought “no,”

It couldn’t be so,

A new Dr. Seuss book,

That someone forsook?

But, yes, it is true,

And it is quite a coup,

That some lost stories or such,

Were found — thanks so much!

We’ll make a mad dash

With our piggy bank cash,

To read what is new,

All the way through!

Hitting the bookstores today is a new Dr. Seuss book, Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories.

People who know the Editorial Assistant, Mom Karen, also know that she loves Dr. Seuss. I think it’s because her imagination never quite left childhood, but I’m not an authority on that. You’ll have to ask her yourself.

Anyway, Dr. Seuss expert Charles Cohen spent thousands of hours conducting research on the author and his works and writings. He discovered about 30 Dr. Seuss stories that had never been published in book form.

It was something of a literary mystery.

Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories are among these works.

We can never have too much Dr. Seuss, the Editorial Assistant tells me. I will have to take her word on that. I did find Mom Karen’s 50th anniversary edition of How the Grinch Stole Christmas to be quite delicious, although she was not pleased to see it in shreds. Oops! Apparently, books are to be read, not chewed up.
