It's the literary equivalent of buried treasure! The audiobook edition features a cast of celebrity narrators who bring these stories to life. Readers include:

THE RABBIT, THE BEAR, AND THE ZINNIGA-ZANNIGA, narrated by Anjelica Huston
GUSTAV, THE GOLDFISH, narrated by Jason Lee
TADD AND TODD, narrated by Joan Cusack
STEAK, FOR SUPPER, narrated by Edward Herrmann
THE STRANGE SHIRT SPOT, narrated by William H. Macy
THE GREAT HENRY McBRIDE, narrated by Peter Dinklage

Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss. Originally published in magazines between 1950 and 1951, they include "The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga " (about a rabbit who is saved from a bear with a single eyelash!); "Gustav the Goldfish" (an early, rhymed version of the Beginner Book A Fish Out of Water);  "Tadd and Todd" (a tale passed down via photocopy to generations of twins); "Steak for Supper" (about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner); "The Bippolo Seed" (in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision); "The Strange Shirt Spot" (the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back); and "The Great Henry McBride" (about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of the real Dr. Seuss himself).

In an introduction to the collection, Cohen explains the significance these seven stories have, not only as lost treasures, but as transitional stories in Dr. Seuss's career.  With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan (whether scholar or second-grader) will want to miss!
