Otherwise it's a cute and sturdy book, just not the full book as I expected.
Posting a review to note: the board book version (which someone gifted to us) is heavily abridged, and not nearly as fun as the full thing. Happened to see it in the pediatrician's office during a check-up, and was surprised to find a longer (and better!) version. Went and bought the hardcover version from Amazon, and it is the whole thing. Get the original, not the abridged version. So much better.
I have been buying copies for baby showers and birthdays for my friends' children in the hopes that I can make their (my friends') lives more annoying (and wonderful).

Tongue twisters that'll make you stumble and chuckle as you try to read this insane book aloud.
I'll be buying another copy for my friend to share the pain.
Some Dr. Seuss books aren't that long, but Fox in Socks is about the right length for reading to a pre-schooler in my opinion, as it keeps their attention with the wonderful drawings and rhymes. The only real negative is that sometimes these books feel a bit dated, but as they are still as popular as ever I don't think that matters and certainly not to children.
