If I Ran the Circus
Random House, 1956 - Juvenile Fiction - 65 pages
Step right up for Dr. Seuss's classic rhyming picture-book tale of young Morris McGurk's big circus dreams. This circus has more than a mere lion tamer and trapeze artist! At the Circus McGurkus, you'll be intrigued by the wink-hooded Hoodwink, terrified by the Spotted Atrocious, and amazed by the daring feats of the great Sneelock. And these are just a few of the astonishing things you'll find under this big top. Told with the humor and originality that are synonymous with Dr. Seuss, If I Ran the Circus is a crowd-pleasing showstopper!
