"Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times (grinning purple elephants, floating golden castles) and the bad (deep blue wells of confusion). Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'" --(starred) Booklist.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The clever, tripping rhymes and whimsical creatures and landscapes here will draw the faithful as usual…Most beguiling, however, is the artful phrasing of the gentle message: caught in life’s waiting games, we wait for ‘the mail to come, or the rain to go/or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow … or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants/or a wig with curls, or Another Chance’…Montaigne pointed out that it’s the journey that matters, not the arrival; here, Seuss explores the same philosophical message in his own inimitably wise and witty style.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
