Scientist written. God awful reading experience.
on October 10, 2012
I love Dr. Seuss. Sadly, this doesn't appear to be his writing. I'm pretty sure his brand name was pimped out to a scientist. There's no excuse for writing this bad. The author has no sense of verse and his writing style has no rythym to it. In fact, some of the ultra-scientific sentences are so long and incomprehensible, your toddler will have no idea what the freak you are talking about, and neither will you. This was clearly written by a scientist, not a true writer. I'm giving it two stars only because the illustrations are nicely done. Rather than this book, you should buy "If I Ran the Zoo," which is classic Seuss at his best, flows beautifully, and has many hilarious pages ("...in the northwestern corner of east South Dakota" makes my family lose it every time.)
