Random House to Publish Seven Rare Dr. Seuss Stories

The Takeaway

Dr. Seuss fans, rejoice. This fall, seven rare Seuss stories, which were previously printed in Redbook, will be published in book form. The stories – which he wrote between 1950 and 1951 –  have fantastically Seussian titles: “The Bippolo Seed,” “Zinniga-Zanniga,” “Tadd and Todd,” and “Gustav the Goldfish.” The compilation is called “The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss,” and Random House is publishing it in late September. Dr. Charles Cohen, a dentist from South Deerfield, Mass., is a Seuss enthusiast who spent years tracking the stories down in libraries. He originally listed them on eBay, which attracted Random House’s attention. He joins us to discuss the stories.
