Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!

By Dr. Seuss and Jack Prelutsky, Illustrated by Lane Smith

A hilarious story about all the pupils and teachers at Diffendoofer School, written with all of Dr. Seuss’s classic trademark wit.

Diffendoofer School isn’t your average school. With classes on yelling and smelling and teachers bouncing on trampolines, this brilliant tale highlights the importance of individuality and thinking for yourself!

This splendid school-based story was the last storyline developed by Dr. Seuss shortly before his death in 1991. Brought to life in all its Seussian glory by poet Jack Prelutsky and illustrator Lane Smith, Hooray For Diffendoofer Day! contains the same humour and wit so evident across Dr. Seuss’s classic stories.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to his millions of 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, which included the creation of the one and only ‘The Cat in the Hat’, published in 1957, which went on to become the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
