LeSIEG, Theo. Would You Rather be a Bullfrog? (New York): Random House, (1975). Octavo, original glazed pictorial paper boards, patterned endpapers. $1950.
First edition of Seuss’ book of far-fetched, fanciful forced choices.
When Ted Geisel contributed text but not illustrations to the Beginner Books, he wrote under the name "Theo LeSieg," as in this book that playfully presses young readers to decide whether they would rather be a cactus, toadstool or rose; have six feet of 164; or—the toughest choice of all—a dog or a cat ( "I can't even make MY mind up about that Dog and Cat"). Younger & Hirsch 81.
Small spot of soiling to title page, a bit of wear to extremities. An extremely good copy.
