Dr. Seuss’s very first book for children! From a mere horse and wagon, young Marco concocts a colorful cast of characters, making Mulberry Street the most interesting location on the town. Dr. Seuss’s signature rhythmic text, combined with his unmistakable illustrations, will appeal to fans of all ages, who will cheer when our hero proves that a little imagination can go a very long way. (Who wouldn’t cheer when an elephant-pulled sleigh raced by?) Now over seventy-five years old, this story is as timeless as ever. And Marco’s singular kind of optimism is also evident in McElligot’s Pool.
Marco is in a pickle. His father has instructed him to keep his eyes peeled for interesting sights so that it will and from school, but all Marco has seen is a humdrum old horse and wagon. Believe if he had something more to report, say, a zebra pulling the wagon. Or better yet, the zebra could be pulling a blue and gold chariot. No, wait! Maybe it must be a reindeer in that harness. Marco’s story grows ever more elaborate as he reasons that a reindeer would be happier pulling a sled, then that a really strange sight would be an elephant with a ruby-bedecked rajah enthroned on top. “Say! That makes a story that no one can beat, / When I say that I saw it on Mulberry Street.” Over and over, Marco tops himself until he is positively wound up with excitement and bursts into his home to tell his dad what he saw on Mulberry Street.
Pulitzer-prize winning Dr. Seuss needs no introduction. His ode to the imagination of a child is as fresh and exquisitely outlandish today as it used to be when first published in 1937. It is a classic which will never fade with age. (Ages 3 to 8) –Emilie Coulter
