Great!
14 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

It's fun to see some of Dr. Seuss' other characters, besides the Cat, the Grinch, and Sam-I-Am. Pontoffel Pock messes up his job at the Dill Pickle Works, and wishes he could get away from it all. McGillicudy, a fairy, answers his prayers with a magic piano that can take him away from it all. But Pontoffel wreaks havoc, and falls in love with an eyeball dancer named Neefa Feefa, and soon it's a trip around the world to find him and the piano!
