Book review: "Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!"

I'm a big fan of Dr. Seuss, and while this book isn't his best, it's still pretty good.

Marvin K. Mooney is supposed to go, and that sets the scene for 25 pages of delightfully silly pictures and fun-to-say-out-loud rhymes ("Get yourself a Ga-Zoom. You can go with a boom!").

It's never clear WHY Marvin has to go, and I wonder if some kids might speculate on the reason. "Did he do something wrong? Is he in trouble?" (A giant hand points to Marvin as the text says "GO!")

Still, this is a good read-aloud book that kids should like for the pictures and the rhymes.
