I had first heard about the Seven Lady Godivas at the end of last year, after a visit to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago for an exhibit on the work of Dr. Seuss. This past Friday on Dr. Seuss' birthday, I came across this link with more information about the book, so on a whim thought I'd check Amazon to see if they had a copy, and much to my surprise, they had a used copy at a reasonable price, so I picked it up.
I found the book a little hard to read, only because it's a prose story, but I kept trying to read it in rhyme, since it is a Dr. Seuss book after all. There's nothing challenging here, although I found the Horse Truths to be very clever, and the illustrations range so far into the absurd that the nudity doesn't really come across as anything more than silly.
A fun little addition for a fan of Dr. Seuss, but probably nothing a general reader would find appealing.
In his inimitable way, Dr. Seuss takes an old English legend and brings it to life with drawings and prose. This volume is no longer in print. But it will reward the mature reader far above the difficulty of searching and paying for it.
