Published by Random House in Illustrations based on the Hannah Barbera cartoon special. The Cat in the Hat opens the story to tell us that it really did happen. Daisy-Head Mayzie starts out as just Mayzie McGrew, a young girl sitting in class, but then all of a sudden a daisy grows out of the top of her head. Other students point it out to the teacher who tries to yank it out unsuccessfully. The Principle, Mr. Gregory Grumm, is very smart and his office is full of books.
Then the daisy begins to wilt! At first Mr. Grumm thinks all is well because the daisy will be gone soon, but he quickly realizes that Mayzie seems to be wilting too and discerns that if the daisy dies so will Mayzie!
They make Mayzie lie down and then call her parents. McGrew is a welder image only — see notes below and Mr. McGrew is a shoe salesmen. They both leave work and head to the school. The Principle also calls Dr. Eisenbart and Finch the Florist. She jumps out the window to run away from the bees. When she tries to hide behind Office Thatcher he holds his hat up and catches all of the bees in it. Then he runs after Mayzie back to the school.
The daisy on her head has gotten taller and fatter! The crowd of people swarm around Mayzie. Her mother wants to faint, the florist wants to cut off the daisy, the doctor wants to use her to get a research grant. Then even more people start showing up including the Mayor! There is also a smooth talking agent named Finagle.
Finagle the Agent convinces Mayzie to sign a contract with think-proof ink, even though her mother disapproves and the principle tries to tell her not to leave school. Daisy-Head stockings, And Daisy-Head sinks. Daisy-Head buttons, And Daisy-Head bows. Mayzie was famous, The star of her shows. Daisy had gotten tons of money, but she has no friends. Nobody loves me. They love her… They love her NOT! The Cat in the Hat takes her back to her family and friends at school.
Then he sums everything up and lets the reader know that Mayzie is doing well, the flower went away, and she is back to her studies. Errr…well, it practically never popped up there again. Excepting, occasionally. Just now and then. To the ongoing presence of Theodor S. Seuss Thanks, Herb. This book was published posthumously and was not illustrated by Dr.
Seuss: American Icon. McGrew is depicted holding a tray of dishes when they call her to tell her about Mayzie. There are enough changes to justify some sort of introduction in the book to explain how the story came about. Seuss of the main character and it has all the charm and classic Seussianess that I feel the book lacks. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
