"Theo. LeSieg lives on a mountain in southern California..."
TEN APPLES UP ON TOP!
By Dr. Seuss as Theo. LeSieg
First printing of this rhythmic counting reader, one of the hardest to find Seuss books in the first edition.
Fine in very good plus to near-fine jacket.
TEN APPLES UP ON TOP!
TEN APPLES ON TOP! was meant as a follow-up book for early elementary school readers after they had succeeded with GREEN EGGS AND HAM: silly and fun, both books were meant to amuse children while repeating the simple words in clever ways for memory and practice. A great copy that comes directly from the stock of Aleph-Bet Books, the firm of Seuss bibliographers Helen Younger and Marc Younger.
