In this classic Seussian tale, the good doctor primes his readers against all the little mishaps and misadventures that can befall even the best of us - from bang-ups and hang-ups to lurches and slumps - encouraging us to take life in our stride! With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the Australia’s top ten favourite children’s authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.

About The Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, 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 Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.

      Comments about Oh, The Places You'll Go!:

      My favourite of all of Dr Seuss's books; its encouraging message of believing in yourself and following your dreams is universal and timeless. It may be a little on the long side for very young children, but it's inspiring message makes it perfect for school graduation gifts and other milestone achievements for children.

        I bought this book in bulk for a graduating class of HSC students and they loved it. It was a great farewell message for them and something that they can come back to when they need a lift.

          In a fun way this Dr Seuss tale goes through the journey of life - the opportunities and possible setbacks - aimed at young children but very relevant to young adults as they embark on their journey into real world. Advocates resilience, optimism and tackling life's challenges!
