A Secret Wish

So, I am a bit of a Dr. Seuss freak. I loved his books as a child, and I'm lucky enough to be able to read his books as an adult every single day. I have The Cat in the Hat memorized, and have since I would read it to my little brother years ago. Same with Green Eggs and Ham. I have many of his other books but that's neither here nor there.

In surfing the web a while ago, I found the most amazing and interesting website that I've every come across, it's called The Art of Dr.Seuss and it is filled with some of the beloved characters that I knew and loved growing up. However, there's also a section on there called The Secret Art collection. Some of it is fairly typical of what you'd expect to see from Seuss, a little tiny yellow bird with feathers about 100 times longer than his body flying across a blue sea. But some of the art is a little disturbing. "Myopic Woman" is .... er... interesting and a little graphic.

I am addicted to this site. Absolutely addicted. I look, I dream, I wish. The art is priced as art, and I know that I'd never be able to buy it (unless I win the lottery or something), but last night I was looking through Amazon, and look what I found!


I think it's so cool! I can't wait to buy it (well, yes, I can becuase if I was to get this before I'm done school, I'd never open another text book again!)

After your post earlier about spelling, I couldn't help but laugh at your line:

I have many of his other books but that's neither HER nor there.

I remember the saying is "Here nor there". LOL

I've always enjoyed the Dr. Seuss books! After reading them to my own kids, I'm now getting to read them to monsterboy - his current favourite is Green Eggs and Ham.

Have you ever checked out this site?
