by | Read by Neil Patrick Harris, Anjelica Huston, Jason Lee, and a Full Cast

Children Ages 6+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1951

A cast of celebrities adds variety and flair to this collection of seven Dr. Seuss stories published in book form for the first time. Peter Dinklage and Jason Lee go for straightforward readings that emphasize Seuss’s trademark rhythm and rhyme in “The Great Henry McBride” and “Gustav, the Goldfish.” Neil Patrick Harris elevates the text with his buoyant and expressive reading of “The Bippolo Seed,” as does Joan Cusack with her reading of “Tadd and Tod.” Anjelica Huston is a highlight, bringing nuance, distinct voices, and urgency to her performance of “The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga.” Each story is a flight of imagination grounded by real emotion and engrossing narration—making this a production worthy of repeat listening.
