Picture Book Review: In a People House by Theo. LeSieg

In a People House, by Theo LeSieg (Dr. Seuss) illustrated by Roy McKie, Bright and Early Books,  Random House, New York, 1972.
This Dr. Seuss book is published under his pseudonym, Theo. LeSeig, his birth name spelled backwards.  The goal of this book was to introduce children to new words.  In this book a mouse invites his bird friend into a people house to see what is inside the house.  The see many wonderful things, clock, ball, broom, door and many more.  There viewing ends with a big crash, and then they remember there are people in the house who don't care for birds and mice in their house.  This book has the Dr. Seuss rhyming magic, and simple illustrations from Roy McKie although Seuss usually illustrated his own books.
