Gerald McCloy is sent home from school because he can only speak in sounds and not in words
Based on Seuss's 1951 animated film, this book tells the story of Gerald McBoing Boing. Instead of talking, he makes noises--he either "honks" or "cuckoos." He feels so out of place in the world that he decides to run away. On his trip, a radio announcer hears him and thinks that Gerald's ability to make noises could lead to a lucrative career in the voiceover business. Soon, Gerald is heralded as a celebrity, and everyone loves him. With color illustrations throughout.
