    With his unmistakable rhymes and signature illustration style, Dr. Seuss creates a classic picture-book ode to aging in You're Only Old Once! On a visit to "the Golden Years Clinic on Century Square for Spleen Readjustment and Muffler Repair," readers will laugh with familiar horror at the poking and prodding and testing and ogling that go hand in hand with the dreaded appellation of "senior citizen." Though Dr. Seuss is known for his peerless work in books for children, this comical look at what it's like to get older is ideal for Seuss fans of advanced years. In his own words, this is "a book for obsolete children." A perfect gift for retirement, birthdays, and holidays!

    Specs

From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults.

LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates.

    • You're Only Old Once!

      Very funny book that is still very relevant today. You don't have to be all that old to understand the feelings shared about a visit to the doctor or hospital.

    • Great book, great gift

      I first got this book for my mom, for Mother's Day. I'm back here getting it for my grandparents for Christmas, because I know they'll appreciate it.I didn't even know this book existed until I came across it in a bookstore, but I'm so glad I found it. It's got very gentle humor, and the illustrations and text are slightly different from your average Seuss book, while still being really amusing. It's got the laughs of a gag gift, but it's not a waste of money. It's a really fun book, and it's definitely worth re-reading.
