HarperCollins Children’s Books U.K. announced the publication of The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss, a collection of seven stories by the iconic author and illustrator published in magazines in 1950 and 1951. The collection will hit stores Sept. 29.
In the book’s introduction, Dr. Seuss scholar and collector Charles D. Cohen explains the significance of these seven stories as transitional stories in Dr. Seuss’s career that marked the beginnings of his new philosophy about writing for children. These stories mark the beginning of the rhyming style with which he is now so closely associated.
"To publish such an amazing new collection of stories from Dr. Seuss is a dream come true,” says Neil Dunnicliffe, editorial director of HarperCollins Children’s Books U.K. “I know that Seuss fans of all ages will share our joy on the publication of this book.”
