Inside this very special anniversary edition of Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, you’ll find the complete, original text and illustrations by Dr. Seuss, along with 32 pages of commentary and archival images written and compiled by Charles D. Cohen, the world’s foremost Seuss scholar and collector. Also included for the first time together are two rarely seen Seuss stories: “The Ruckus” about a bird who likes to hear himself talk but has nothing to say, and “The Kindly Snather,” a cautionary tale that points to the perils of greed and sloth. With detailed—even fascinating—footnotes, this is a must-have volume for Seuss fans of all ages.
About Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss is quite simply the most beloved children’s book author of all time. His real name was Theodore Geisel. On books he wrote to be illustrated by others, he used the name Theo. LeSieg, which is Geisel spelled backwards.
Roy McKie is the illustrator of many books, among them In a People House, by Dr. Seuss writing as Theo. LeSieg. He lives in Flemington, New Jersey.
About Charles Cohen
