3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Story Great, but Bad Printing, April 13, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Lorax (Classic Seuss) (Hardcover)
I love this book. Well, not the exact book I received, but the original "Lorax" story. The text of the book I received from Amazon is slightly blurred: some sort of printing error, I guess. And of course, it's nigh on impossible to find an edition of the book with the truly telling line about Lake Erie anymore ("...looking for water that isn't so smeary./I hear things are just as bad up in Lake Erie."). Ah well - it's much better to have this shell-of-a-copy of the tale than none at all!

We are all poorer for the censorship of the line about Lake Erie!

the public is always poorer when people in power are given the right to forbid them from hearing the truth, just because its too revealing.

So funny, I never knew of the line about Lake Erie. I purchased a second copy at half priced books today. After reading your comment, I checked for the text about Lake Erie and sure enough it was there! Thanks for posting this info! Neat fact!
