A new favourite. And, it turns out, apropos since Dr. Seuss's anniversary of his birthday just passed this week. The Boy on Fairfield Street is a wonderfully written account of how Ted Geisel became the iconic children's author he did. It was no straight road either which makes it all the more inspiring. As you can see we found this gem at the library but with its lovely prose and illustrations and inspiring message, this one's worth owning.
