Reviews - What do customers think about Daisy-Head Mayzie (Classic Seuss)?
Not my favorite, but a Kindergarten Classic Apr 14, 2008
This manuscript was reportedly found among Dr. Seuss's things after he died, and was finished and published by his wife. This is not my favorite Dr. Seuss, but a cute book nonetheless. Mayzie suddenly sprouts a daisy on top of her head, and the town is in an uproar trying to figure out what should be done! With a "There's No Place Like Home" and Forgiving Family ending, it's worth reading. It seems like I had more trouble reading the rhymes smoothly than with other Seuss favorites.
Daisy-Head Mayzie new review Feb 12, 2006
Title explanation: All the reviews before this one seem old. The latest one I found was in 2004 and (believe it or not) some even were made in the 1990s. Title explanation end. My sister, Russian Blue Witch, checked this out from the library one day The story is nice but weird because Dr. Seuss often leaves out questions in his stories. Why did the daisy sprout out of Mayzie's head? How did it sprout out of Mayzie's head? The same with The Cat in the Hat. Where did the Cat in the Hat come from? The Acme Child Cheer agency? LOL! (Laugh out loud.) The story is also kinda boring, but I guess it's fine. A con is how they spell Mayzie. I know, I know, you can spell names any way you want to, but it is still spelled oddly so when I searched for this on this site.com to write this review, I just searched "Daisy-head" because I forgot how they spelled Mayzie. I don't get why people don't think it is by Dr. Seuss, though. Also, I am a bigger-age kid and I didn't make out practically the first time so for easy reading, this is a no go. And it's weird: The petals just fall off, the daisy doesn't disappear. Good moral, though. What I think is really interesting is the story behind it: it was left in a drawer after Dr. Seuss died. Overall: Nice, but you might want to check it out from the library instead of buying. Not super-interesting. Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"
I love this book!! Mar 2, 2004
I love this book because it is funny, and exciting. It is easy to read and it made me laugh. T.J. (4th Grader)
too hard for young children Dec 13, 2002
What everyone is saying that this isn't Seuss's real work, I believe. Seuss uses language that is easy to understand for children, and they used rather big words in this. I do like this book but if I read it to a kid they would only understand some of it.
Dr. Seuss is rolling over... Dec 9, 2001
Dr. Seuss left this book in a drawer when he died. He obviously didn't think enough of it himself to publish it, but now that he's dead I guess anything's fair game. The illustrations are designed to fool you into thinking he did them, but he didn't. Yet this book says "by Dr. Seuss" on the cover just like The Lorax or Cat in the Hat. Deceitful.
