Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a book written and illustrated by children's author Dr. Seuss. It was first published by Random House on January 22, 1990. It was his last book to be published during his lifetime. The book concerns the journey of life, its challenges and joys.

Though written in the style of classics such as Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! has many specific characters, including a narrator and 'the reader'. A young boy, referred to simply as 'you', initiates the action of the story; the presence of a main character helps readers to identify with the book. Unlike other Dr. Seuss books, it is written in the second person and uses the future tense.

The story begins with the narrator, relating the decision of the unnamed protagonist (who represents the reader) to leave town. The protagonist travels through several geometrical and polychromatic landscapes and places, eventually encountering a place simply called 'The Waiting Place', which is ominously addressed as being a place where everyone is always waiting for something to happen. As the protagonist continues to explore, spurred on by the thoughts of places he will visit and things he will discover, the book cheerfully concludes with an open ending.

Following its original release in 1990, Oh, the Places You'll Go! reached number one on The New York Times Best-Selling Fiction Hardcover list. This made Dr. Seuss one of the handful of authors to have number one Hardcover Fiction and Nonfiction books on the list; among them are John Steinbeck, Jimmy Buffett and Mitch Albom; his You're Only Old Once! hit number one on the Nonfiction list in 1986.

In the United States and Canada, Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a popular gift for students graduating from kindergarten through college, spiking in sales in the April–June period.[1][2] It reached number one on USA Today's Best Selling Book list in 1997 and 2021, and reached #2 in 2015 and 2017.[3] Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association listed the book as one of its 'Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children.'[4]

Film adaptation[edit]

In the early 1990s, producers Ben Myron & Roland Joffé, at Lightmotive with TriStar Pictures, were set to produce a film adaptation of the book with Seuss penning the screenplay.[5] The Seuss screenplay was later rewritten by Richard LaGravenese and Barry Berman respectively, but the adaptation was never filmed.[6] A musical animated film adaptation of the book along with The Cat in the Hat and a spin-off Thing One and Thing Two are canceled from Warner Animation Group. J. J. Abrams is producing the film alongside his production company Bad Robot Productions.[7]

Legal issues[edit]

In 2016, former Star Trek writer David Gerrold partnered with artist Ty Templeton and Glenn Hauman's website ComicMix for a Kickstarter for a parodic book entitled Oh, the Places You'll Boldly Go! The proposed book would parody the original Seuss book in a Star Trek context. (The title references the phrase 'to boldly go where no one has gone before', made famous by Star Trek.)

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which manages the assets of Dr. Seuss's estate, sued to stop the Kickstarter. The lawsuit stated that Hauman's book, which, also makes use of other of Seuss' books, including Oh, The Places You'll Go!, Horton Hears a Who, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, The Lorax, and The Sneetches and Other Stories, copied Dr. Seuss' copyrighted work, recreating entire pages from his books 'with meticulous precision.' The lawsuit also stated that the book's violation of Dr. Seuss' trademark would create confusion in the minds of the public as to Dr. Seuss's approval or licensing.

In May 2018, U.S District Court Judge Janis Sammartino found in favor of ComicMix on the issue of Dr. Seuss' trademark, ruling that its book was 'a highly transformative work that takes no more than necessary to accomplish its transformative purpose and will not impinge on the original market for Plaintiff's underlying work.'[8]

In March 2019, Sammartino similarly found in favor of ComicMix on the issue of copyright, ruling that the book was protected under Fair Use,[9] because its authors borrowed 'no more than was necessary for their purposes,' and those elements 'were always adapted or transformed,' and 'imbued with a different character.'[10]

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision in December 2020 on the basis that the work was not parody as it copied too much of the book's original style and composition, only juxtaposing Star Trek characters in place of Seuss' original ones. Further, the Ninth Circuit argued that the timing of release might impact the commercial value of Seuss' book, since the latter is often given out as gifts for graduates.[11]

Oh, the Places You’ll Go quotes

Here are some memorable quotes from Oh, the Places You’ll Go


“You’re off to Great Places!

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting,

So… get on your way!”

“You are on your own. And you know what you know.
And you are the guy who will decide where to go.”

“With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
You are too smart to go down any not so good street.
And you may not find any
You’ll want to go down
In that case, of course,
You’ll head straight out of town.”

“Its opener there
In the wide-open air.
Out there things can happen
And frequently do
To people as brainy and footsy as you.”

“When things start to happen,
Don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.”

“You will be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
Who soar to high heights.”

dr. Seuss quotes in oh the places you’ll go

”Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes you won’t.
I am sorry to say so
But sadly, its true
That bang-ups
And hang-up’s
Can happen to you.”

“You can get all hung up
In a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.
You be left in a Lurch.”

“You’ll come down from the Lurch with and unpleasant bump.
And the chances are then, that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.”

“You’ll come to a place where streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted, but mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?”

“If you go in, should you turn left or right….
maybe right and three quarters? Or maybe not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I am afraid you will find,
For a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.”

“You can get so confused, that you’ll start in to race.
Down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace.
And grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
Headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The waiting place….”

“For people just waiting
Waiting for a train to go
Either waiting for a bus to come, or a plane to go,

or a mail to come, or the rain to go.
Or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow

Either waiting around for a Yes or a No
Or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.”

“With banner flip-flapping,
Once more you’ll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!”

“Oh, the places you’ll go!
There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored.”

“There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.

“You’ll be as famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win
on TV.
Except when they don’t Because, sometimes they won’t.
I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you.”

“Whether you like it or not, alone will be something
you’ll be quite a lot.”

“There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.”

“But on you will go though the weather be foul.
On you will go though your enemies prowl.
On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.”

“On and on you will hike, And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems whatever they are.
You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.”

“So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s
A Great Balancing Act.”

“And will you succeed?
You will, indeed!
( 98 and 3 quarters percent guaranteed.)”

So… be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea, You’re off the Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So… get on your way! Happy Doctor Seuss day!
