Illustrated in full color. Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in1973, is a letter outlining his hopes of finding "a great color artist who willnot be dominated by me." The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text aboutfeelings and moods as part of the "first book ever to be based on beautifulillustrations and sensational color." The quest for an artist has finallyended--after the manuscript languished for more than two decades--at the paintbrushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning,expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kickingits heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, andan angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and amenagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods andemotions what Oh, the Places You'll Go! does for the human life cycle.Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings.With Johnson and Fancher's atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off thepages, Dr. Seuss's vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book isbound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors. less
This is a gorgeous later work of Seuss illustrated by a group of fantastic artists that add a different sort of perspective to this famous author. Seuss uses references to colors and animals to describe various moods. It's lovely and rhyming and simply expressive.
