And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street : Green Back Book Paperback
by Dr. Seuss
Illustrated by Dr. Seuss
Part of the Dr. Seuss - Green Back Book series
In this delightful tale, young Marco allows his imagination to run riot as he travels home from school one day, to the extent that a horse and cart is soon transformed into a chaotic carnival of colourful creatures. This delightful book forms part of the second stage in HarperCollins' major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of 10 more titles in August 2003, such all-time favourites as `How the Grinch Stole Christmas!', `Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?' and `Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book' boast bright new covers that incorporate much-needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. `And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street' belongs to the Green Back Book range.

Review by conuly
This is a classic Seuss book - strange, wild, rhyming. Marco is obliged to tell his father what he saw every day. But all he's seen today is a horse and wagon. (Ah, timeshift. If I saw a horse and wagon on the street it really WOULD be worth talking about!) So he changes a detail or two, and in a one-person version of telephone goes dashing up the stairs to tell his dad all about the BIG BAND and PLANES and ELEPHANTS he saw.Hilarious :)I will note that there's a mention of a "Chinese man who eats with sticks". While I don't think that line would make it into any book printed nowadays, I don't think it's actually racist, though if you're concerned you should read this book before you buy it.
