And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street
by Dr. Seuss
read March 2009
According to www.seussville.com this is Dr. Seuss’s first book. The artwork is not as detailed as some of his other books, but you can see where his other books got their start.
This book tells the tale of a young boy who always comes home with fantastic tales of what he sees on his way home from school.
He sets off for home from school and all he sees is a old horse pulling a cart. That just won’t do. He starts to make it more and more outlandish, beginning with a zebra pulling the cart and ending with a parade with police, the mayor, some elephants and giraffes, a big brass band amongst other things. He walks up the steps to his house and walks in the door. His father asks him what he say today on his way home…and he can’t say it. All he can muster up is, “Nothing…But a plain horse and wagon on Mulberry Street.”
