Originally published in magazines between 1948 and 1959, they include "The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga," about a rabbit who is saved from a bear via a single eyelash; "Gustav the Goldfish," an early, rhyming version of the Beginner Book A Fish out of Water; "Tadd and Todd," a tale passed down on a photocopy to generations of twins; "Steak for Supper," about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner; "The Bippolo Seed," in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision; "The Strange Shirt Spot," the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back; and "The Great Henry McBride," about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies were bested only by those of Dr. Seuss himself.

For each story, Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen offers a brief introduction that explores recurrent themes and images, such as fish and twins. With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan will want to miss.
