Item Description...
This amusing tale, originally created nearly fifty years ago, tells of a young boy who had an unusual language all is own, communicating in weird sounds rather than words.

Publishers Description
In 1950, Theodor Geisel--known to the world even then as Dr. Seuss--met up with a friend who worked for a new animation studio called United Productions of America. "UPA has a fresh outlook," the friend said. Could Seuss write something new and different for them? Something that had a little more going for it than the usual cats chasing mice? "Just suppose," Seuss came back, "there was a little kid who didn't speak words but only weird sounds?" And that's how Gerald McBoing Boing came into being. Brought to life by UPA as an animated cartoon, it attracted legions of fans, rave reviews, and went on to win an Academy Award(R) in 1951. Available in book form only briefly at the time of the movie's release, here it is again--unique, delectable, vintage Seuss.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointed  Jun 2, 2008
I was very disappointed when I received this product - due to the price I was not expecting a Little Golden Book. I went back and reviewed the ad- it did not mention it was a LGB.
A story about the value of unusual talents  Jun 18, 2007
This is a wonderful book about the value of unusual talents. Gerald is a boy who utters noises rather than speech. He makes sounds like "Cuckoo", "Honk", "Boom" and Boing" in a very realistic manner. Because of this, his parents grow frustrated, his teacher wants him out of the class and the other children make fun of him. When he finally decides that there is no place for him, he packs his things and runs away. However, he is stopped by a man who has heard of his unique talents and wants to hire him to make sound effects at his radio station. From that point on Gerald is famous and goes on to a very successful career in radio. It contains a lesson that all children should learn.
Bad message.  May 31, 2007
I completely agree with everyone who gave this book 1 star. I just brought this book home from the library & read it to my 2 year old. After reading it, I was very shocked & disappointed. I love Dr. Seuss, and am surprised he wrote this. It is a terrible message to send to children that they won't be accepted by their peers, teachers & (worst of all) their parents if they are different. It is not until Gerald is rich & famous that he is accepted, and his parents become proud of him. I'm planning on taking this book back to the library ASAP.
Great book for reading readiness...  Jun 11, 2006
This book lets you teach 61 vowel-spellings using 338 vocabulary words.
Vintage Suess  Aug 12, 2005
I love this book. It is great fun to read and really gets the kids going with the fabulous "sounds" in the book. Be prepared to BAM, TOOT, BONG-BONG-BONG your way through this delightful story. The original cartoon won an Academy Award in 1951, a true treasure today.
