Love From Dr Seuss

The Blurb On The Back:

One love, Two love,

I Love, You love.

A celebration of love and happiness from the Cat in the Hat and other Dr Seuss favourites, based on the original classic stories.

The perfect gift for someone you love. 

The Review (Cut For Spoilers):

This is a gift book tie-in collection of extracts from Dr Seuss books, all relating to the theme of love and clearly aimed at the Valentine’s Day market and includes classic Dr Seuss illustrations of characters such as the Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 but it’s an obvious cash in and as such, for true Dr Seuss fans only.

There’s not a whole lot that I can say about the book because it doesn’t have much substance to it and some of the extracts have a tenuous connection to love (notably one taken from one fish, two fish). There’s fun to be had from seeing the familiar illustrations but adding random hearts to them doesn’t make them any more relevant to the theme.  If you or your beloved are a big fan of Dr Seuss, then this would be a good buy but for me it’s a bit of a cynical exercise and given the subject matter I thought it was a bit distasteful.

LOVE FROM DR SEUSS was released in the United Kingdom on 24th January 2019.  Thanks to the Amazon Vine Programme for the review copy of this book.
