A comic classic by Dr. Seuss about overcoming life’s obstacles turns 50!
Dr. Seuss tackles the struggles of everyday life’s—difficult people, bullies, bad weather, political unrest, even crowds—in the rhyming picture book I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. When our hero stubs his toe, he decides to find a less troublesome place to live. Soon he's off on a journey "to the City of Solla Sollew, on the banks of the beautiful River Wah-Hoo, where they never have troubles! At least, very few." But between his encounters with the Midwinter Jicker and the Perilous Poozer of Pompelmoose Pass, he soon finds out that confronting his problems might actually be easier than running away from them. A funny story that can be read purely for entertainment, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew is ideal for sparking discussions. It’s message—that the best way to deal with an obstacle is by tackling it head-on—makes this an perfect gift for all ages and occasions—especially graduations! Available for a limited time only with a peel-off 50th Anniversary Sticker on the cover, Seuss fans of all ages will find Solla Sollew an inspiring book to read again and again.
