5.0 étoiles sur 5 WONDERFUL!! 29 septembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
I can remember the first time I read this was when I was 8 years old. I was in the waiting room at the dentist's office. The whole time I was in the dentist's chair all I could think of was that wocket in the pocket, and I still to this day remember it. I am now 27 years old, but contrary to popular opinion, I don't think anyone is too old to enjoy Dr. Seuss. He is a legend that will be in my family forever. I hope that one day I have kids so I can share the wonderful imagination of Dr. Seuss that I was able to experience at a young age.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Seussian imagination unleashed! 12 janvier 2001
Par Michael J. Mazza - Publié sur
Dr. Seuss' best books tend to have a touch of fantasy (or light-hearted science fiction) to them, and "There's a Wocket in My Pocket!" falls into that category. In this book of simple rhymes, the narrator introduces the reader to the gallery of weird creatures that share his home. There's no plot, but there are Seussian creatures galore.
Beginning with the Wocket of the cover, each creature favors a habitat that conveniently rhymes with its name. Example: "And that Zelf up on that shelf! / I have talked to him myself." The creatures include the pink-and-yellow striped Zlock, the cantankerous Yottle, the creepy Vug, the gravity-defying Geeling, and many others. As always, Seuss' colorful artwork is rich in whimsical details.
The narrator loves his home and its weird inhabitants. The book thus seems to have the message that it's OK to be different, or to come from a home that others might find odd. And that's a lesson I like! So enjoy the book, and don't be surprised if you find a "Ghair" under your chair.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Add the Zonics to Your Phonics! 25 décembre 2000
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur
This is a five star book for those who love it, and probably much less for those with timid children who imagine "boogey men" in the night whenever a strange creaking sound is heard. I averaged that out to a four star rating.
This is one of the more unusual Dr. Seuss offerings. The rhymes are deliberate designed to only evoke nonsensical names . . . belonging to imaginary beings. So it's Dr. Seuss taken to the nth degree.
As such, the book provides many helpful clues to word decoding, encourages love of rhyming, adds humor to the thought of those "unidentifiable" noises in every house, and helps ease some children's fears of the unknown. However, it requires a lot of sophistication to enjoy this book at all these levels. For adults, the fun may pale before it does with the children . . . so the necessary connection of reading to your child may be lost unless you, as the adult, fall in love with this book. I hope that you will so fall in love . . . if you don't know the book already.
The main drawback of this book is that it may cause some fright for some children. If you have such a child, I suggest you avoid the book. If you are not sure if the book is frightening, talk to your child about how this is supposed to be fun. See how she or he reacts to the first reading. Perhaps you can borrow the book from the library, see it at a friend's house, or look at it in a book store first.
The book's basic structure is to take a common household item, and rhyme it with a made-up word: basket -- wasket; curtain -- jertain; clock -- zlock; sink -- nink; lamp -- zamp; etc. The parallels are placed close together, like this: "But that BOFA on the SOFA . . . Well, I wish he wasn't here."
The book is thus very good for identifying the visual form of the household items. As such, the choice or words and images are good for beginning readers. The rhymes show the way that words are often formed in English, providing a certain subliminal form of learning. But they also indicate that if the letters don't add up the right way, there's nothing that can go with them . . . except imagination. The book has the poetic license to encourage your child to use her or his imagination in the same way.
The drawings are very humorous, and many of the creatures are small, fuzzy, and friendly. But some are not, and that's where the potential problem comes in. The child in the story is clearly disturbed by some. For example, the QUIMNEY up the CHIMNEY: "I don't like him, not at all." "And it makes one sort of nervous when the ZALL scoots down the HALL."
These quesy moments are mitigated by the book's end. "I don't care if you believe it." This allows the reader to come back to reality, having enjoyed the fantasy world. Next, you get the child's reaction in the story. "That's the kind of house I live in. And I hope we never leave it." That statement is similar to Peter Pan's declaration that "I won't grow up." It provides a good launching pad for discussing the meaning of the story with your child.
Any number of follow up exercises with your child can be rewarding. Why not start by writing some rhymes and drawing some pictures that make the scary creatures seem ordinary or friendly to your child? For example, the ZILLOW on the PILLOW could become someone who only tells funny stories. The NOOTH GRUSH on my TOOTH BRUSH could become someone who helps scrub your teeth cleaner, and then puts the tooth brush away. You get the idea. This would help your child understand that there are many uses to which imagination may be applied, including making the world a more wonderful and friendlier place.
But be sure to get the XOVE out of your STOVE!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 There's a Wocket in my Pocket 30 octobre 2002
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
There's a Wocket in my Pocket is a great book for kids. Its a book about a boy who finds all kinds of different Wockets all over his house, in his pocket, in his trash baket, in his bureau, in his closet, in his curtains, behind his clock, up on a shelf, in the sink, in the lamp, in the pots and pans, in a bottle, in and in his chair, they are everywhere. This book is a great book if you like to rhyme words, some a tongue twisting, and some are funny. In the end the boy talked about how he likes where he lives because of all the Wockets there. The reason I liked this book is because it was tongue twisting and it rhymed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Put a grin on your chin with a wocket in my pocket... 26 février 2001
Par Lex Preistner - Publié sur
Dr. Seuss has delighted children for generations with his bright, imaginative illustrations and playful, rhyming verse... but "There's a Wocket in my pocket" remains a king among nobility, a diamond among gems. Every page features deliciously whimsical creatures that made me laugh out loud when I was little. Okay, okay... this really isn't the "novel of the century", but it's definitely a bona fide masterpiece for Children! (The other great one, in my opinion, is "Did I ever tell you how lucky you are?") Who, as a child, didn't spend hours looking at Seussian sketches and projecting oneself into those deceivingly simple alien landscapes? Seuss is amazing, true genius. From dark and eerie desolate plains of hanging clothes lines and swamps of green goo, to busy market-places full of delightful monsters, Seuss knows intimately what appeals to kids!
