A classic Dr. Seuss story about a boy who’s a little different—now available in a larger size!
Based on the 1951 Academy Award–winning animated cartoon written by Dr. Seuss, this sturdy hardcover edition of Gerald McBoing Boing—with vintage graphic-style illustrations by Mel Crawford—is now available in the same size as other large Seuss classics!
Gerald is a small boy who speaks in BIG sounds instead of words. (Think “HONK!” “BOING BOING!” and “CLANG CLANG CLANG!”) Unhappy at home and in school, he feels alone in the world until he is discovered by the owner of a radio station in search of sound effects! An ideal choice for celebrating the quirks that make each of us unique, Gerald is a funny and lively read-aloud, perfect for sparking discussion. It’s a great gift for birthdays, holidays, and happy occasions of all kinds!
