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!
