The spine, which has been mentioned before is not the best for viewing the pictures, or comfortably holding it open while reading with a small one on your lap but it is manageable.
Dr. Seuss is timeless..and a must have in some form.
The major disappointment was the change in page layout. If you compare it to the single books, the pages are just laid out differently. In a couple stories, there's a focal point in the story that is buried in the crease because the of the page changes. If they hadn't dont that, this would be an awesome book. The facts and info they include with the book make it worth keeping on my bookshelf, but I read from different compilations.
Six by Seuss and A Hatful of Suess are two collections of multiple stories in a single book that preserve the original page layout. Both are available here on Amazon. Six by Seuss: A Treasury of Dr. Seuss Classics A Hatful of Seuss: Five Favorite Dr. Seuss Stories
The (One) Positive: It contains a lot of Seuss lore and scratchwork between stories. You'll see things like old first draft drawings of Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Seuss's "Epic Poem" (which is very short), and first appearances of characters he'd later incorporate in his books.Read more ›
Second and in my opinion worse, is that they have altered Seuss. It took me awhile figured out what it was but as soon as I looked at a story I already had read I could tell something just didn't look right. They took a layout Dr. Seuss undoubtedly put allot of time and thought into and just plain screwed it up. Many of the illustrations are shrunken to fit two or more onto one page, some are blown up to fit the larger format and worse still many (if not most) of them are cropped, cutting off things like the cute little houses Seuss would work into the back ground, (the ones my three year old joyfully points out every time).
The additional content is pretty slim, in between stories they have a page from a celebrity on what they think of Seuss and maybe a page or two of biography on Seuss, mostly just tiny pictures from other books Anyways this one sits on the shelf while all the other Seuss story books get constant use.
