The original print book is one of Dr. Seuss’ earliest work. It was published in 1947, won 1950 Young Reader’s Choice Award, and was an honor recipient of 1948 Caldecott Medal award.
A boy named Marco was fishing in a small pool. When he was told there were no fish in the pool, his imagination went wild: “This might be a pool, … connected to one of those underground brooks”, “This might be a river, … connecting McElligot’s pool with the sea”!… In a boy’s imagination, everything is possible!
The original illustrations by colored pencil are transferred onto iPAD/iPhone screen perfectly. As typical Oceanhouse Media’s book apps, there are three ways to read the book:
