Packed with all the essential ingredients that have made Dr. Seuss so well-loved over the last 50 years -- riotous rhyme, bizarre creatures, zany artwork, off-the-wall humour -- If I Ran the Zoo is vintage Seuss at its very best. This paperback edition of a popular story tells of Gerald McGrew's grand designs for running his own zoo, packed with weird and wonderful creatures such as the incredible Thwerll, whole legs are snarled up in a terrible snerl, or the family of Joats, whose feet are like cows' but wear squirrel-skin coats!
About The Author
Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendant in Springfield, Massachussets, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
