Author: Dr. Seuss, the pen name of Theodore Seuss Geisel .
Published: 1986, by Random House

Dr. Seuss's famous, frivilous charm is now levelled at one of modern society's greatest fears: aging. And rather than recoil in horror, Seuss embraces the process with a wry grin and catchy rymes: "Nasturtiums and marble cake, white and blue chalks, anthracite coal and the feathers of hawks."  

Subtitled A Book for Obsolete Children and published to celebrate the author's 82nd birthday (though some say he never matured past 8), this story probably won't appeal-- except for it's silly rhymes and bright pictures-- to its traditional audience of youngsters. But its charm and wit making it endearing to all those who have felt as if their life were now ebbing away, and remind them that we can all still be children at heart.
