Overview

The stories of one of the world's most beloved children's authors are both imaginative and entertaining. But a closer look at Dr. Seuss's stories reveals that many are also inspirational. In this accessible and immensely enjoyable resource, Kemp finds parallels between the actions of cats in hats, Grinches, Snitches, Sneetches, and other "creachas" and lessons found in Scripture. Each reflection begins with an insightful biblical passage and features lines from the original Dr. Seuss book. Thus, as the author shares his enthusiasm for the creativity and wisdom of Dr. Seuss, both the meaning and the relevance of many Bible passages come to life. Reflections on these favorite stories are included: How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Horton Hatches the Egg, Yertle the Turtle, What Was I Scared Of?, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, The Zax, Horton Hears a Who!, Green Eggs and Ham, Bartholomew and the Oobleck, The Sneetches, The Butter Battle Book, and On Beyond Zebra!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Retired United Methodist minister Kemp has written a brief and rather engaging work that asserts the Christian lessons to be found in the whimsical writings of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)-the hope for redemption, as seen in the Grinch; the need for commitment, as seen in the journey "on beyond Zebra"; the necessity of acting on the behalf of others, as seen in Horton and the Whos; and so forth. Given Geisel's liberalism and his dedication to the idea of conveying humane (not so much non-Christian as post-Christian) values without adhering to or conveying doctrine, it is a bit odd to see theology re-injected into his works. Even so, many readers should be charmed by Kemp's reflections. A counterpart to Ralph Wood's The Gospel According to Tolkien or Mark Pinsky's The Gospel According to the Simpsons, this book is for most collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
