2014 год. Random House Books for Young Readers Dr. Seuss's first Caldecott Honor-winning picture book (1948) features Marco, star of And to Think that I Saw It on Mulberry Street, now jacketed with the Caldecott Honor seal embossed and with foil. Beloved by generations of readers, McElligot's Pool is especially noteworthy for its beautiful illustrations; it's the only book by Dr. Seuss illustrated in watercolor. In the story, young Marco goes fishing, and an old farmer calls him a fool. "The pool is too small. And, you might as well know it, when people have junk, here's the place that they throw it." But Marco is a boy with a big imagination and a lot of patience. As he sees it, McElligot's Pool might be connected to an underground river, which might be connected to the sea, which might be filled with any number of fantastic fish. This jacketed edition makes an ideal gift for fish fanciers, big dreamers, and Seuss fans of all ages.
