My neighbor loaned me ‘Come Over to My House’ by Dr. Suess, when he was writing as Theo LeSieg. Isn’t it fab? Another one I had never read before. It’s so cheerful and fun, showing houses and children from all over the world. Adorable. It’s been a great shock to me to realize that there are many Dr. Seuss books that I have never heard of or read! This one is out of print and the used ones on Amazon are not cheap -- I would try the library or Ebay.

I think my neighbor might want her book back, she loaned it to me in the fall. . .

  1. I've never heard of this one! Another great place to find older, out-of-print books is Etsy.

  2. I happened upon this one (I'd never seen it before either) when I was out thrifting one day... I was SUPER excited to get it for my collection. I love finding books I never knew I always wanted :)

  3. I had never heard of this one either until my neighbor told me about it :)

    ETSY. I always forget that there are books to be found there as well!

    Finding unexpected book treasures is SO MUCH FUN ~

  4. That is fabulous. I just checked the public library - there is ONE in the entire system. I'm reserving it now. :)

  6. @Danzel: I LOVE it when the library has a hard-to-find book -- Yay library!!

    @Kelly: So happy to have you stop by! Isn't it thrilling to have your kiddo reading the same books that you did as a child? It makes me cry. (I'm very sappy.:)

  7. this is wonderful! I love that the illustrations are still bright and whimsical even though they aren't done by the main man himself, why are publishers not all over reprinting this? they would make a killing...but don't get me started about the craziness of publishing...its beyond me. And Robyn you found this? wowee good find sister!

  8. Oh my goodness, yes the world of publishing is so wacky! WHY is this book out of print? Why do Gyo Fujikawa books only sell for $10? (not complaining really but they are worth so much MORE)

  9. This is a book my grandma used to read me as a kid. I could not remember what it was called, but my mind was filled with the pictures! I finally found it online on flickr and began a mad search to buy a copy. I eventually found one on amazon--but it was pricey. But it was worth it to me. :) Love this book so much.

  10. Aw, you had a cool grandma, Vanessa! So there's another really off-the-path Dr. Seuss that I had NEVER heard of until I saw it at another friend's house -- and now I can't remember the name, it's about weird made up months and how to celebrate them, I'll ask my friend and report back. :)
