Not the Happiest Bday for Dr Seuss. So sorry, Everyone, but we can't get them, either!
These Dr Seuss books from 1940s & 50s are now officially out-of-print https://t.co/vzZCEwccAm So sad. Instead of making these teaching moments for ourselves & our children, we have decided we should whitewash our history and ignore the current bias & violence against Asians.— Books on First (@booksonfirst) March 2, 2021
Fantastic Mr. Fox (Paperback)
Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox!
Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief—it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don't know is that they're not dealing with just any fox—Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender. Only the most fantastic plan can save him now.
