In the story, young Marco goes fishing, and an old farmer calls him a fool. "The pool is too small. And, you might as well know it, when people have junk, here's the place that they throw it." But Marco is a boy with a big imagination and a lot of patience. As he sees it, McElligot's Pool might be connected to an underground river; which might be connected to the sea; which might be filled with any number of fantastic fish. This jacketed edition makes an ideal gift for fish fanciers, big dreamers, and Seuss fans of all ages.
Imagination runs wild in this Caldecott Honor-winning tale featuring Dr. Seuss's inimitable voice and hysterical illustrations. The first Seuss title to feature full-color art on every other page, this adventurous picture book tells of Marco-who first imagined an extraordinary parade in And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street-as he daydreams of all the possibilities that await him while he fishes in McElligot's Pool. Optimistic and exciting, this tale is the perfect bait, and readers young and old will be hooked on this fish-tastic favorite.
