"A little boy, trying to decide what to do, has all sorts of ideas presented to him by grinchy-looking hunches who give good, bad and silly ideas. The book has Dr. Seuss's bright, funny illustrations and rhymes."--School Library Journal.
"It's awfully awfully awful / when you can't make up your mind!" For one poor boy, this indecision takes the form of dozens of Seussian Hunches--a Sour Hunch, a Very Odd Hunch, the Homework Hunch, a Four-Way Hunch, the Nowhere Hunch--all with elaborate finger-pointing hats and strong opinions of their own. Pretty soon the boy's head is "frightfully ga-fluppted" and "murky-mooshy:"
By now my mind was so mixed up
I really didn't know
if I wanted to go to the barber shop
or to Boise, Idaho.
After much arguing and "barg-uing" and shoving and yelling, a decision is made and our hero follows a Munch Hunch to lunch. The nonsense and cleverly crafted message in Hunches in Bunches is right up to par with Dr. Seuss's many other classic picture books. It's easy to become overwhelmed by advice when you have a mind--but can't make it up. Sometimes the best plan is to trust your own hunches, and disregard the vocal bunch of Hunches clamoring for attention. This makes a great gift for well-meaning flakes and ditherers of all ages. (Ages 4 and older) --Emilie Coulter
