A thoroughly Seussian tweak of the alphabet-book tradition, On Beyond Zebra is about all the letters that most people ignore--the ones that come after Z. Our hero (instantly recognizable to most Seuss fans as the boy who captured Thing One and Thing Two in The Cat in the Hat) takes his young friend, Conrad Cornelius O'Donald O'Dell, on a guided tour of all the weird creatures that begin with letters such as Yuzz, Wumbus, and Glikk. "And Nuh is the letter I use to spell Nutches, Who live in small caves, known as Nitches, for hutches." The message is pretty simple: the alphabet pins down boring old "reality," but if you explore further afield there are more interesting worlds to discover. "So, on beyond Z! It's high time you were shown, / That you really don't know all there is to be known." Explorers in need of guidance will even find a table of useful new letters (a beyondabet? a WumbaGlikk?) in the back. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr
"Children will be intrigued and delighted with the nonsensical alphabet that begins after Z."--Booklist.

That language opens new views of the world is a great message. That there is always more to know is a great one too.
boob boober, bab boober, boob boober bubs, they float on the water like blubbery tubs. They're no good to eat, you can't cook 'em like steaks, but they're handy in crossing small oceans and lakes!
I think that's it anyway.
Even at that age, I wasn't impressed by the cat in the hat or green eggs and ham, though of all the popular Seuss books, those seem to me to be the least juvenile (which I guess is a dumb criticism since that's the audience . . . ).
I like to buy these for people with kids of that age, 5 or 6.
Charming, sophisticated, Dr. Seuss at his best. I highly recommend this to any mom & dad who've exhausted the 4 sentence per page books -- you'll enjoy them as much as your kids -- if not more.
