Seven stories by Dr. Seuss that appeared in magazines sixty years ago but have never been available in a book will now be published in book form. These stories were in written as the author was changing from writing in prose to his more familiar rhyming poetry.
The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss, who died in 1991, will be available September 27. It includes "The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga," about a rabbit who is saved from a bear with a single eyelash; "Gustav the Goldfish," an early, rhymed version of the book A Fish Out of Water; "Tadd and Todd," a tale passed down via photocopy to generations of twins; "Steak for Supper," about creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner; "The Bippolo Seed," in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision; "The Strange Shirt Spot," which was the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back; and "The Great Henry McBride," about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of the real Dr. Seuss. The stories were published in magazines in 1950 and 1951. Random is publishing the book as a $15 hardcover.
