Author(s): Dr. Seuss
Buzz, buzz Moo, Moo Cock-a-doodle-do In this delightful board book the eccentric Mr. Brown introduces babies and toddlers to a host of wonderful noises. With uniquely Seussian pictures and rhyme, this charming book also serves as a first step on the road to learning to read with Dr. Seuss. With his inimitable combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide. As the first step in a major rebrand programme, HarperCollins is relaunching 17 of Seuss's best-selling titles, including such perennial favourites as The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham and Fox in Socks. As well as 10 classic paperbacks, the new range also includes two rebranded board books (newly reduced to GBP3.99 to increase competitiveness in the market place), along with four book and audio tape sets and a paperback bind-up.
Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his 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 hugely successful range of early learning books.
