Overview

The uproarious 1931 New York Times bestseller is now back in print—beautifully redesigned to showcase the unmistakably brilliant original drawings by Dr. Seuss.

What on earth is a boner? It's an outrageous mistake—and in Boners, the craziest and funniest ones ever made by schoolkids are collected for sheer fun. This brand-new edition of Boners, features the original artwork done by a young Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss. It is an exciting glimpse of the early work of an artist who would go on to become one of the greatest and most successful author-illustrators ever.

Dr. Seuss's captivating drawings bring to life the silly and seriously misguided "facts" recited or written by young (and not so young) scholars-in-training. Here are a few of them—and yes, they are all real:

The inhabitants of Moscow are called Mosquitoes.

A vacuum is an empty space where the Pope lives.

Milton wrote Paradise Lost; then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained.

A senator is half horse and half man.

Dr. Seuss's whimsical illustrations include depictions of Polonius, the "mythical sausage," and how geometry teaches us "to bisex angels." With Seuss's own spin on these childish errors, they're even more laugh-out-loud funny.
