I wasn't sure what I would think about this book at first. In some ways my inner child was screaming "you can't make a book about Dr.Seuss and make it rhyme like a Dr.Seuss book and then make it your own. Hate admitting when I'm wrong but this time I was. This book is well written and entertaining and fun to read. Much like the featured author in this book, the story has a plot and although it rhymes from beginning to end, it never gets boring. I loved the forward the author put in this book as it was humble and honest and gave you a real sense of how much she cared about this work. Everyone in Whoville should be proud of this work that honors this fine creator of fiction. Loved it.

This book was great! I wanted more! I love how it all rhymed. It was descriptive. I was able to picture it in my mind as I was reading. Thank you for sharing it! I love Dr. Seuss. It is my theme in my kindergarten classroom! If it is not Seuss it isn't allowed in my room! The kids love his books. They truly help children learn to read and learn to love reading. I will read this book to my kids this upcoming school year when we do rhyming words! Hope there will be a part two. Maybe it could be about adventures while spending the day with the good doctor! :)

What an interesting set of facts about a children's book author. Not hardly any pictures but she did a fine job of making her point across to the reader. I recommend this ebook for those who may remember Dr. Seuss' books when they. we're very young and for five stars on her ambitions to go directly to his home and not giving u on this goal of meeting him and asking special questions about him and his writing. I received this ebook for free and here is my honest review. Great job! By Angela

This ebook began with an "Author's Note" that told about Ms. Emerick's admiration and strong desire to meet Dr. Seuss when she was a child. She actually wrote a letter to Dr. Seuss in 1989 and asked for an appointment and interview. She received a polite letter from his secretary saying that Dr. Seuss was not available for an interview.

This is a rhyming fiction story about a girl who met Dr. Seuss. The girl in the story was named Annie G. Magee and she had her heart set on meeting Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss).

Annie traveled to California and did not give up until she met Dr. Seuss and asked him to reveal his secret for coming up with the ideas for his stories.

The author listed some interesting facts about Dr. Seuss at the end of the story.

I am a HUGE Dr. Seuss fan and I loved reading his books to children when I worked as a school librarian. I could never go wrong with a Dr. Seuss book!

"The Day I Met Dr. Seuss" was a delightful story with rhyming words and a very believable plot. The girl in this story displayed persistence and perseverance in her quest to meet and interview her favorite author.

The Author's Notes at the beginning and end of the story were very interesting and showed that Ms. Emerick also displayed persistence and perseverance in her quest in getting this story published.

This would be an excellent story to share with children and encourage them to think about questions they would like to ask their favorite author.

I recommend this short story to readers of all ages.

Most readers do not find themselves standing on middle ground when it comes to the work of Dr. Seuss; they either love it or hate it. This work of historical fiction is based on the author's real experience in attempting to visit Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). In 1989, she wrote him a letter requesting an interview. His secretary politely declined. Emerick persisted in her admiration for the author by writing an imaginary tale reminiscent of Geisel's work.. She mailed him the manuscript in 1990 to ask if he objected to it. Geisel gave her permission to publish it.

In her story Emerick makes a long journey to the home of Dr. Seuss. She meets Mister Hupp who tells her that Ted is quite normal, but no one understands the thoughts in his head. The author is determined to see Dr. Seuss and continues to wait outside. She keeps knocking at the door, but no one will let her in. Then she converses with an old man who informs her that Dr. Seuss might be in. Soon after he ushers her inside the house. He shows her the author's workroom and says that when he is really stuck he tries on one of his thinking caps because writers must imagine worlds. "When people work hard at what they do best, we often think of them as unlike the rest. But they aren't really different than others you meet, just every day people who accomplished some feat."

I think that this quote exemplifies Emerick's experience. Like Theodor Geisel she worked long and hard to make her book successful. Publishers rejected this work until she decided to publish it on her own recently. Many writers find themselves in her position. Emerick includes copies of the original letters that she wrote to Geisel though she places the setting of this story a few years earlier in 1985.
