This book about the "differenter" school called Diffendoofer is actually not 100% written by Dr. Seuss. This is his story concept, but he never completed it. After he died, the publisher brought in poet Jack Prelutsky and illustrator Lane Smith to finish it.

The story is wacky as you would expect from both Dr. Seuss and Prelutsky. It is written in silly rhyme. The illustrations are a mixture of the new (Smith), and the old (Dr. Seuss) pasted in, which gives it the feel of a tribute to Dr. Seuss. I enjoyed the silliness about this school where they learn "lots of things not taught in other schools." Although the rhyming is at times forced, it is still a lot of fun.

Great for all ages.

Although not really written by Dr. Seuss, the feeling of a Seuss book is still there. A very fitting and touching tribute to all the wonderful teachers who encourage students to think outside the box.

Miss Loon is our librarian, / She hides behind the shelves, / And often cries out, "Louder!" / When we're reading to ourselves.
