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.

This is a re-reader... funny, rhyming tales with really great moral lessons. It might be meant as much or more for the parent who is reading as for the child who is listening! Read full review

I know there is this whole historical connection, but as a child I learned the wonderful lesson of not putting myself above others, not bullying and working together. Who in their right mind would want to be Yertle? Read full review
