Runway: Seuss’s Treasure Chest

9 Apr

In the mid 20th century, Theodor Suess Geisel planted seven little stories into the soil of various magazines. This September, over five decades later, those seeds will be re-planted in the hoops of blooming in the garden of “The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories”.

The Guardian’s childrens book section provides a delightful look into the forthcoming archival release. (Special thanks to CraveWriting reader Joe Allen for the article link!)

“Bippolo Seed” will be displayed on shelves just three weeks after the arrival of Maurice Sendak’s picture book “Bumble-Ardy.” With so many new faces in kid lit tirelessly picking away at the inspiring yet overbearing shadow of Seuss and Sendak, it will be interesting to see if anyone will be able to compete with them this summer.
