Make sure you hold the glow in the dark under a light source to charge up the cover, then enjoy a spooky surprise in the darkness! A perfect present for boys and girls from ages three and up.

Pants that can ride a bike? Pants that can somehow row a boat without any arms or hands? I haven't read this book since I was about 7 so I though I had imagined them but, no, that was Dr Seuss.

As a kid, I loved these "pale green pants with nobody inside them". Yes, some other kids were terrified but they had not understood the point of the story - the pants were just as terrified of you. A very important lesson to learn.

Originally only published as part of The Sneetches and Other Stories, HarperCollins have just released this special glow-in-the-dark edition.

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - 'And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street' - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only 'The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
