Later edition of this much-loved Seuss title, inscribed on the dedication page by Dr. Seuss: "For Michael Brennan, Best Wishes—Dr. Seuss."

Book with a couple spots of faint soiling, paper clip mark to first two pages, and dampstain to front board. Price-clipped dust jacket with a bit of wear to extremities. An extremely good inscribed copy.
