"Intense is the word for Ender's Game. Aliens have attacked Earth twice and almost destroyed the human species. To make sure humans win the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses-and then training them in the arts of war...The early training, not surprisingly, takes the form of 'games.'...Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games...He is smart enough to know that time is running out. But is he smart enough to save the planet?"

Oh, the Places You'll Go!


Dr. Seuss

Carl liked it so much he bought it as a graduation present
A Book-of-the-Month Club Selection
For out-starting up starts of all ages, here is a wonderfully wise and blessedly brief graduation speech form the one and only Dr. Seuss. In his inimitable, humorous verse and pictures he addresses the Great Balancing Act (life itself ,and the ups and downs it presents) while encouraging us to find the success that lies within us.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
This joyous ode to personal fulfillment is one book that could not have been written by a young up start. It's Dr. Seuss at his best. Parents will find Oh, the Places You'll Go! the perfect send-off for children starting out tin the maze of life, be they nursery school grads or medical school achievers. Everyone will find it inspired good fun.
