Synopsis

Synopsis

Sam the Owl and Gus the Firefly literally light up the sky in this classic Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. In Sam and the Firefly, P. D. Eastman (author of Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go!) introduces us to the dynamic duo of Sam and Gus, who soar through the air writing words in the night sky. But when Gus’s words end up causing confusion and chaos for the people on the ground, it’s up to Sam to help Gus “write” his wrongs.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

"...provides interest, suspense and word repetition. Illustrations excellent. Recommended."--(starred) School Library Journal.
P.D. Eastman

About P.D. Eastman

P.D. Eastman - Sam and the Firefly
P. D. EASTMAN—aka Philip Dey Eastman—wrote and/or illustrated 18 children’s books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, Robert the Rose Horse, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, Philip had worked for Walt Disney Productions and Warner Brothers Cartoons when he enlisted in the Army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit—a unit headed by Theodor Geisel (who would later become known to the world as Dr. Seuss). When his friend Ted Geisel approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series at Random House, Philip—now P.D.—published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, Random House has sold over 30 million books by P.D. Eastman, and he has become one of the most beloved children's book authors in the world.
