In 1950, Theodor Geisel—known to the world even then as Dr. Seuss—met up with a friend who worked for a new animation studio called United Productions of America. "UPA has a fresh outlook," the friend said. Could Seuss write something new and different for them? Something that had a little more going for it than the usual cats chasing mice? "Just suppose," Seuss came back, "there was a little kid who didn't speak words but only weird sounds?" And that's how Gerald McBoing Boing came into being. Brought to life by UPA as an animated cartoon, it attracted legions of fans, rave reviews, and went on to win an Academy Award® in 1951. Available in book form only briefly at the time of the movie's release, here it is again—unique, delectable, vintage Seuss.

    I read this when I was little! Anyway, it was about a boy who could only say noises (bam! Clang! Boing!) And no one wanted to play with him. Read this book if you want to find out the ending!

      This book is very entertaining for little kids. If your younger siblings are learning how to read you can get this book for them to practice!
