You're Only Old Once! A Book for Obsolete Children
If laughter is the best medicine, then You’re
Only Old Once! is a delightful new defense against aging. Anyone who has ever
submitted to a battery of medical tests will empathize with Dr. Seuss’s Everyman
as we follow him through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years
Clinic. From the initial Eyesight and Solvency Test through all the stops along
Stethoscope Row to finally being “properly pilled” and “properly billed,” Dr.
Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and
wisdom. A perfect gift for anyone over 50!
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
Suessical Doors in the Red Line Subway (with a poem)
Smap 3 and Smap 4, they each had a door. Next
to the doors, the subway would roar. Smap 3 rode to 95th, Smap 4 rode to Howard.
Meeting back at home, they discussed how they'd soured, on preachers and rats
and hucksters on Red. Maybe the Blue Line they should move to instead. One day
they got on, at Jackson, no fare. Transfered in the tunnel, and rode to O'Hare.
But there was nothing to see, and the ride seemed to last days. Just parking
lots, hotels, and Old Country Buffets. They returned to the Loop, and hustled
off Blue. Going back to the Red was the thing they would do. They vowed no more
would they northwesterly roam. Among the preachers, rats and hucksters, they
were back, safe at home.

ensemble of children's poetical humor bearing the name of JKaylin.
highly read slim paperback quickly emptied off bookstore shelves with its first
publication in 1994. Yet aimed at an audience of children 3 thru 8, people of
all ages still enjoy this inspirational packed volume of encouragement,
silliness, wit, and humor. "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say?" is indeed a
novel approach to children's literature.
Author JKaylin's close
understanding of children and the child within in us all is evident in this
delightfully written and simply illustrated children's book. JKaylin has
carefully put into these pages a liberal amount of insight, warmth, and
laughter. He then has sprinkled them all with the essence of Dr. Seuss and Shel
Though this book is purely fun for its non-sense and silly
wit, the content of "A Yellow Jellow, What Did You Say?" is also meant to
encourage a child to think of themselves as something special, as they learn to
discover and appreciate the wonder, awe, and magic of the highly versatile
English language and the written word.
JKaylin is an author being
described by some professional editors as the next generation in word play and
funniness since the humorist writer of the 1920's, Ogden Nash. "A Yellow Jellow,
What Did You Say?" is an asset to any library, including any digital book
library that you'll want to take with you where ever you go.
