A New (Old) Book from Dr. Seuss

posted by Nell Minow

On Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow reviews a new collection of stories from Dr. Seuss, published for the first time in book form: The Bippilo Seed and Other Lost Stories.  Doctorow says, “The illustrations are classic Seuss and full of wit and irreverence, though the ratio of words to pictures is a lot wordier than the typical Seuss, owing, I suppose, to the constraints of the original magazine publication.”  He especially recommends The Great Henry McBride, “about a young fellow who can’t make up his mind on a single career and demands that the world accommodate his wish for excitement and novelty through his whole life.”  And there’s an audio book, with Neal Patrick Harris, Anjelica Huston, Joan Cusack, Jason Lee, Edward Hermann, Peter Dinklage, and William H Macy as an “indispensable companion.”
