The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories is a collection of seven illustrated stories by children's author Dr. Seuss published on September 27, 2011. Though they were originally published in magazines in the 1950s, they had never been published in book form and are quite rare, described by the publisher as "the literary equivalent of buried treasure". The stories were discovered by Charles D. Cohen, a Massachusetts dentist and a Seuss scholar/biographer, who also contributed an introduction to the collection.

Oceanhouse Media published this book to be used as an app on Iphones, Ipod touch, Ipad and android apps.

The seven stories included in the book are:

  • "The Bippolo Seed"
  • "The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga"
  • "Gustav, the Goldfish"
  • "Tadd and Todd"
  • "Steak for Supper"
  • "The Strange Shirt Spot"
  • "The Great Henry McBride"


The story "Gustav the Goldfish" was the basis for A Fish Out Of Water, written by Helen Palmer Geisel (Seuss' first wife), and published in 1961.
