Dr. Seuss's first children's book, "And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street," instantly captivated parents and children when it arrived in bookstores in 1937. Now 75 years later you can enjoy this pivotal story as an interactive omBook!
Marco walks to school along Mulberry Street keeping his eyes peeled for interesting sites to share with his dad. But today all he sees is a boring old horse and wagon. "That's nothing to tell of, that won't do, of course". . . so Marco envisions much more exciting events, each more elaborate than the last. The horse and wagon turn into a zebra and charioteer, then to an elephant with a sleigh as Marco's imagination goes on a wild ride down Mulberry Street.
"But now I don't know . . .
It still doesn't seem right.
An elephant pulling a thing that's so light
Would whip it around in the air like a kite.
But he'd look simply grand
With a great big brass band!"
