One dark night, Sam the owl meets Gus, a mischievous firefly. Gus plays some naughty pranks with his lit tail, but finishes by realizing he can use his special powers to be helpful. This is a favorite childhood book which will bring a smile to everyone who reads it!

— Patsy

Sam the Owl and Gus the Firefly literally light up the sky in this classic Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. In Sam and the Firefly, P. D. Eastman (author of Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go!) introduces us to the dynamic duo of Sam and Gus, who soar through the air writing words in the night sky. But when Gus’s words end up causing confusion and chaos for the people on the ground, it’s up to Sam to help Gus “write” his wrongs.

Beginner Books are fun, funny, and easy to read! Launched by Dr. Seuss in 1957 with the publication of The Cat in the Hat, this beloved early reader series motivates children to read on their own by using simple words with illustrations that give clues to their meaning. Featuring a combination of kid appeal, supportive vocabulary, and bright, cheerful art, Beginner Books will encourage a love of reading in children ages 3–7.

★ "...provides interest, suspense and word repetition. Illustrations excellent. Recommended." —School Library Journal, starred review
