A Collection of Goops
by Gelett Burgess

Experience for yourself the treasure that inspired generations of children's authors, including the young Dr. Seuss.  Gelett Burgess first published Goops and How to be Them in 1900, using reverse psychology to poke fun at childrens' poor manners, and giving life to a set of characters he would continue to develop over several decades, through numerous books and even a comic strip.

This collection contains the two most popular of these: the original Goops and How to be Them and its sequel, More Goops and How Not to be Them. We've even included an excerpt from The Burgess Nonsense Book that showcases an entire Alphabet of Famous Goops!

Paperback, size 8.5" x 11", 214 pages
