Join in on the fun (and funny) journey of getting older with this hilarious Dr. Seuss picture book—it’s just what the doctor ordered for old souls, kids at heart, and absolutely anyone dreading their annual checkup.

You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in!

The Doctor is in! Readers will laugh along with the parade of medical madness as an elderly patient is poked, prodded and ogled during his stay at the “Golden Years Clinic on Century Square for Spleen Readjustment and Muffler Repair.” Once again, Dr. Seuss proves that his sharp wit and colorful imagination are a treat for readers of all ages. A perfect gift for retirement, birthdays, graduations, holidays, and anyone needing a little pick-me-up after a doctor’s visit!
Subtitled A Book for Obsolete Children, this unusual item in the Seuss canon doesn’t really belong among the children’s books. Written to celebrate the nonsense master’s 82nd birthday, it follows “you” (an elderly gent in a suit and white moustache) through a physical check-up in some fiendish geriatric clinic. You are measured, prodded, and subjected to all the medical indignities familiar and unfamiliar to the elderly. “You must see Dr. Pollen, our Allergy Whiz, who knows every sniffle and itch that there is… He will check your reactions to thumbtacks and glue, catcher’s mitts, leaf mould, and cardigans too. Nasturtiums and marble cake, white and blue chalks, anthracite coal and the feathers of hawks.” It’s clear that the process is going to be long, but much shorter than the bill. The blurb on the back says it all: “Is this a children’s book? Well… not immediately. You buy a copy for your child now and you give it to him on his 70th birthday.” Actually, it would make an amusing gift for anyone over 40. –Richard Farr
