Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

This deluxe edition of Oh, The Places You'll Go! is a re-release of the very last book that Theodore Geisel penned before his death in 1991. This Dr. Seuss classic offers his signature advice about the ups and downs that life throws at us through a narrative directed at a young male lead. As the young man travels through a world of classic Seuss characters and landscapes, he encounters many challenges and is encouraged to find the success that lies within.

Is It Fun?

Though penned for children, Dr. Seuss addresses all ages, as is often the case, whether we are young or young at heart. In fact, this book has become a popular graduation gift. The cloth slip-case has attractive gold foil stamping and featured inside the book is Dr. Seuss' famous 1977 Lake Forest College commencement speech entitled "My Uncle Terwilliger on the Art of Eating Popovers!" It's short but very powerful. At just 15 lines, the gist is to be very choosy about what you absorb in life and not to be afraid to turn away the "bad air."

Who It’s For

Whether you are buying a gift for a tot graduating from preschool or a young adult receiving a college degree, this book makes a great gift.

What To Be Aware Of

The standard, and less expensive version, is also readily available at retail.
