"Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting.

Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"--(starred) Booklist.

This is the book I will read to my students every year at the end of the school year, no matter what grade I teach! Even if it has a 3.2 reading level. My 12th grade English teacher read our class this the day before graduation, and I remember how relevant and special it was. It is so encouraging...
