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!

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. 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. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. 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. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

  • 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!

    I purchased this book as a gift. The recipient loves it! She shared some of the passages with me and they are not only hilarious but true.

  • 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.

  • See this Doctor First

    This is the perfect light-hearted gift for many of my aging friends who understand and laugh at a single glance. This is best read aloud to another with feeling. Thank you for your PROMPT delivery and the excellent condition of a great book!

  • A hidden treasure

    I purchased this for my ninety- two year old grandfather for his birthday because he is always going to the doctor and they find nothing wrong with him. He loved it and he couldnt put it down. This is a hidden treasure for anyone who enjoys going to the doctor or a great gift for a physican
