From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere! In this hilarious exploration of simple concepts such as colours, numbers and opposites, Dr. Seuss presents a crazy world of boxing Goxes and winking Yinks! Includes a CD performed by Rik Mayall – read along and hear the story brought to life with added music and sound effects.With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK’s top ten favourite children’s authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.
“Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?” Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel. While many rhymes in this couplet collection resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss’s intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book’s original publication in 1960–so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read! (Ages 4 to 8)
