Advice in rhyme for proceeding in life; weathering fear, loneliness, and confusion; and being in charge of your actions.

Illus. in full color. “Don’t be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it’s not ‘Climb Every Mountain, ‘ kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting.

Seuss’ message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act, ‘ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.'”–(starred) “Booklist.
