Oh, the Places You'll Go!

1990, undated later edition, from Random House
Dr. Seuss
Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Bought newish for $17.00
Good condition hardcover

Ironically or not, this was the last Seuss book published in his lifetime.  And although it's a picture book, it is often given to adults who are embarking on a new phase of life.  (He died in '91.)  I got it as a graduation gift (either BA in '97 or Master's in '99) from one of my best friends, who inscribed, "No matter which paths you choose to take, I'll always be right beside you."  Seuss, with the usual strange scenery and creatures, shows a boy going through life's ups and downs, sometimes getting discouraged, but always persevering.
