*** Warning Note: One page contains a pretty awful caricature of 2 African natives ***
As a free public service to spare the unsuspecting reader from being traumatized, I have read this book with a critical and sensitive eye as this is one of the dirty half dozen Seuss books no longer published for their obvious danger to the mental health of the young American mind.
Although, the author is probably just drawing his usual caricatures of various nationalities and most would not object, the one page where the author draws African natives is more than a bit awkward.
My recommendation to the reader is: Don't bother with the book.
My recommendation to the publisher is to edit the offending page.
