Kind of. This book was definitely not his best or my favorite (that goes to the Horton books). But I can see Dr. Seuss all in it. His classic style of rhyme, the texture in the illustrations, it definitely felt like Dr. Seuss. When I finished, I wondered when he wrote the story. The history in the back of the book speculates around 1960. But, what made him not share the book at the time he was writing and publishing? Why put the story aside and work on others. Could it be that he wanted more time to work on it? Could it be that he felt it wasn't quite right and therefore put it aside as he worked on other stories that did feel right?
