Book Review: There's a Wocket in My Pocket by Dr. Seuss - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (17 Oct 2013)
Dr Seuss book never seem to age or get boring and There's a Wocket in My Pocket is no exception.
The story is about a young boy who visits several different areas of his house and finds some strange and bizarre creatures hiding in all sorts of different areas of the house, some of them are fun and others he doesnt like. Such is under his bed, under the lamp, in the chimney.
Of course the fun thing about this book is rhyming sentences used which at times can be a little tongue twistery, illustrated in classic Dr Suess, recommended.
Author Biography - Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of 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 one and only 'The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
