A comic classic by Dr. Seuss with a message about bullying turns 50!
Dr. Seuss tackles troubles--bullies, terrain, weather, war--in the rhyming classic I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew.
When our hero stubs his toe, he decides to find a less troublesome place to live. Soon he's off on a journey "to the City of Solla Sollew, on the banks of the beautiful River Wah-Hoo, where they never have troubles! At least, very few." But between his encounters with the Midwinter Jicker and the Perilous Poozer of Pompelmoose Pass, he soon finds out that confronting his problems might actually be easier than running away from them. A funny story that can be read purely for entertainment, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew
is also a great choice for starting discussions about bullying and facing up to difficulties in life. Available for a limited time only with a peel-off 50th Anniversary Sticker on the cover, this is a great gift for any occasion that will inspire lots of conversation!
