American Icon

Author: Philip Nel

Philip Nel takes a fascinating look into the key aspects of Seuss's career - his poetry, politics, art, marketing, and place in the popular imagination." "Nel argues convincingly that Dr. Seuss is one of the most influential poets in America. His nonsense verse, like that of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, has changed language itself, giving us new words like "nerd." And Seuss's famously loopy artistic style - what Nel terms an "energetic cartoon surrealism" - has been equally important, inspiring artists like filmmaker Tim Burton and illustrator Lane Smith. --from back cover

Coco fährt Rad

Affe auf zwei Rädern: Der Affe Coco lebt bei seinem Freund, dem Mann mit dem gelben Hut. Er ist aufgeregt, denn heute vor drei Jahren ist er aus dem Dschungel hierher gebracht worden und darf deshalb am Abend mit in den Zirkus. Aber vorher erhält er ein Fahrrad als Geschenk und da er schon Rad fahren kann, probiert er sich bald an kleinen Kunststücken. Doch schon bald wird ihm langweilig und er fährt auf die Strasse, wo er gerne einem Zeitungsjungen hilft, die Zeitungen auszuliefern, bis er Jungen am Bach sieht, die Schiffe fahren lassen, worauf er die restlichen Zeitungen zur Flotte faltet und schwimmen lässt. Auf seiner spontanen Weiterfahrt landet er schliesslich im Zirkus, rettet einem kleinen Bären das Leben und darf seine Kunststücke zeigen, bevor er mit seinem Freund wieder nach Hause fährt. Der eher betulichen Geschichte mit den süsslichen Illustrationen sieht man an, dass sie aus den fünfziger Jahren ist. Ob es wirklich nötig ist, bei dem heute so breiten, künstlerisch starken Bilderbuchmarkt Rückgriffe auf Oldtimer zu machen, ist fraglich. Es gibt Klassiker, bei denen man sich eine Neuauflage wünschte, das vorliegende Buch gehört nicht dazu. Ab 5 Jahren, ***, Monika Hedinger.

Dr. Seuss, children and adults alike have been captivated by the charming and laconic tales of whimsical characters and imaginative worlds. But Dr. Seuss' stories are more than just catchy poems; they often wrestle with serious philosophical and moral dilemmas, whether it is Horton discovering the very essence of life or the Lorax teaching us about morality. Dr. Seuss and Philosophy explores philosophical concepts such as the nature of the good life in Oh the Places You'll Go, the method and value of thinking critically in Oh the Thinks You Can Think, and morality and ethics in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, among many others. Anyone who loves Dr. Seuss or is interested in philosophy will find this book to be intriguing and enlightening.

An Annotated Guide to Works by Theodor Geisel in All Media, Writings About Him, and Appearances of Characters and Places in the Books, Stories and Films

Theodor Seuss Geisel—known worldwide as the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss—produced a body of work that spans more than 70 years. Though most often associated with children’s books, he frequently contributed cartoons and humorous essays to popular magazines, produced effective and memorable advertising campaigns (“Quick, Henry, the Flit!”), and won Oscars and Emmys for motion picture productions, animated shorts, and features. As founder and president of Beginner Books, his influence on children’s book publishing was revolutionary, especially in the field of elementary readers. Geisel’s prolific career—he wrote or contributed illustrations to more than 75 books, most of which have been reprinted repeatedly and translated worldwide—and his predilection for made-up creatures make this joint bibliography and iconography especially useful to readers and researchers. The exhaustive bibliography is arranged chronologically, providing full bibliographic information, including translations as they appear, reissue information, and descriptions of the binding. The iconography links more than 900 fictional names, places and terms to the works in which they appear. For the reader seeking a first edition of Quomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit (How the Grinch Stole Christmas! translated into Latin) or hoping to identify “abrasion-contusions” (race cars in If I Ran the Circus!), this work promises as much discovery as a walk down Mulberry Street.

On the Origin of Stories

Brian Boyd explains why we tell stories and how our minds are shaped to understand them. After considering art as adaptation, Boyd examines Homer's Odyssey and Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who! demonstrating how an evolutionary lens can offer new understanding and appreciation of specific works. Published for the bicentenary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Origin of Species, Boyd's study embraces a Darwinian view of human nature and art, and offers a credo for a new humanism.
