You're Only Old Once!: A Book for Obsolete Children
(Random House Books for Young Readers, March 16, 1986)
Join in on the fun (and funny) journey of getting older with this hilarious Dr. Seuss picture book—it’s just what the doctor ordered for old souls, kids at heart, and absolutely anyone dreading their annual checkup. You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in! The Doctor is in! Readers will laugh along with the parade of medical madness as an elderly patient is poked, prodded and ogled during his stay at the “Golden Years Clinic on Century Square for Spleen Readjustment and Muffler Repair.” Once again, Dr. Seuss proves that his sharp wit and colorful imagination are a treat for readers of all ages. A perfect gift for retirement, birthdays, graduations, holidays, and anyone needing a little pick-me-up after a doctor’s visit!
