Overview

Dr. Seuss’s very first book for children! From a mere horse and wagon, young Marco concocts a colorful cast of characters, making Mulberry Street the most interesting location in town. Dr. Seuss’s signature rhythmic text, combined with his unmistakable illustrations, will appeal to fans of all ages, who will cheer when our hero proves that a little imagination can go a very long way. (Who wouldn’t cheer when an elephant-pulled sleigh raced by?) Now over seventy-five years old, this story is as timeless as ever. And Marco’s singular kind of optimism is also evident in McElligot’s Pool.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A fresh, inspiring picture-story book with an appeal to the child's imagination."--Horn Book.
Ellen Lewis Beull
Highly orginal and entertaining, Dr. Seuss's picture book partakes of the better qualities of those perculiarly American institutions, the funny papers and the tall tale. It is a masterly interpretation of the mind of a child in the act of creating one of those stories with which children often amuse themselves and bolster up their self-respect. It is a book which will divert older readers as well as little children. -- Books of the Century; New York Times review, November 1937
