Almost everyone, man, woman, and child, has heard of Dr. Seuss. This amazing author of childrens books lived to create wonderful stories about things that could only spring from his imagination. Once he passed away, people believed that they’d seen the last of the Dr. Seuss books for forever. Then, however, Daisy-Head Mayzie appeared. This was a book that shocked the world – how could Dr. Seuss have written a book from beyond the grave?
It turns out that the good doctor wrote the manuscript for this book and some illustrations and had it lying in his desk. It was found after he passed and it was decided that it should be published. Unfortunately for many fans, this book has not become their favorite Seuss book, and instead has made many wonder if the book was really written by Seuss at all. Daisy-Head Mayzie is all about a little girl, Mayzie McGrew, who suddenly grows a daisy on her head one day. The Cat in the Hat is the one telling the tale, about how tons of adults come rushing to Daisy’s aid in order to cure her of her strange predicament.
The story, however, gives way to clutter, and the colors are sometimes fairly heavy on the page, making Daisy-Head Mayzie a sad reminder that the Dr. Seuss that we all love is no longer here to write amazing works of art anymore. A Seuss collector, however, should definitely have this book in their collection for its historical significance alone.
