Book Overview


This fabulous story book combines three of Dr. Seuss’s most endearing tales – The Sleep Book, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose and Horton Hears a Who!

Written in humorous rhyme and illustrated with characteristically bold and colourful artwork by the master himself, this beautiful treasury is guaranteed to delight young children and bring sweet dreams!

Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book
Full of wonderful yawning creatures who spread sleep thoughts at bedtime – and much more fun than counting sheep – this charming story provides the perfect remedy for children who don’t want to go to bed.

Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose
Thidwick is only too happy that his antlers “can be of some use” to a menagerie of animals who move in and make them their home. But soon his guests go too far and start to endanger the very life of their generous host.

Horton Hears a Who!
This enchanting tale tells the story of Horton the Elephant who comes to the rescue when he hears a cry for help from the tiny inhabitants of a speck of dust – after all, “a person’s a person, no matter how small”.

About the author


Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books, and his first book – And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street – was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
