Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A very good example of [Seuss’s] particular genius for distilling both the spirit of his times and the timeless mind-set of children…And, not least, he made reading aloud something parents, too, could reliably enjoy.” New York Times Book Review
“Offer[s] plenty of offbeat surrealism…but the book also takes a sympathetic view of childhood indecision—with an appropriately indecisive ending.” Publishers Weekly
“A note from the publisher reveals a bit of the anxiety associated with publishing a text written more than fifty years ago, ‘when it was common for people to simply buy dogs, cats, and other animals at pet stores. Today animal advocates encourage us to adopt’…More nostalgia-inducing than groundbreaking, this picture book offers Seuss fans many familiar touchstones: jaunty rhymes, nonsense words… beloved by generations of new and emerging readers.” School Library Journal
“This new-old book presents a complete story line…This genial pet-shop visit provides a tantalizing glimpse into a master’s artistic process.” Kirkus Reviews
