Living Books - Titles-Dr seuss's ABC.
Dr. Seuss's ABC is the first Dr. Seuss Living Book and it was the tenth Living Books PC CD-Rom from 1995, and now it was based on the 1963 story-book.


The story isn't exactly too much a plot as it is Icabod and Izzy going through the alphabet and stating what begins with each letter. The click points mainly comprise of them stating what else begins with each letter, and occasionally there is a musical click point. The running gag in the story is a fast yellow guy named the Zed, who keeps his name a secret until the last page of the book.

Mini-games Edit

  • Icabod & Izzy's Alphabet Song


  • Most of the dialogue is spoken either alliteratively or in rhyme.
  • When Izzy says that Acrobat begins with A, an acrobat doesn't appear on the screen. Instead, she does something acrobatic herself.
  • While Ichabod was given his name in the original book, Izzy wasn't going to have a name until this software.
  • Other than The New Kid on the Block, this is the only other Living Books game where most of the interaction comes from clicking on the text.
  • Page I is the only letter in the alphabet which only features just Icabod and Izzy.
  • From this title to Arthur's Reading Race, a Living Books Sampler was integrated into each product and the "A Random House/Broderbund Company Limited" byline uses a cleaner font. This by-line is also used in the second Living Books Sampler.
  • In the alphabet sing-along song, there's a hidden Easter egg by clicking, in order, S, E, C, R, E again and T, right after Icabod and Izzy sing the alphabet song. A man in a purple sweater appears and sings the first line of the beautiful alphabet song.
  • When Queen Quinella's queen shoes turned to ballet pointed shoes, she loved them and danced ballet on them.
  • When the mouse clicks on the big rock button, it plays Rock-n-Roll music and Icabod and Izzy join in dancing to the music. After the music is done playing, Icabod calls the big rock a "rock-n-roll rock".
  • In a prototype version of this game in the first sampler that was found on The Berenstain Bears Get in a Fight, there were no differences from the real game besides by having no music or sound (which strangely carried into the other samplers with few exceptions) and having a man's voice instead of Icabod's voice announcing the title of the book.
  • This is the first Living Books game (until D.W. the Picky Eater) to support MHK files.
  • You leave the book when Izzy says "OK. Come back and play again soon!".
  • This Living Books game contains "ABC" instead of numbers.


  • Just Grandma & Me
  • Arthur's Teacher Trouble
  • The Tortise & The Hare
  • The New Kid On The Block
  • Ruff's Bone
  • Little Monster At School
  • Arthur's Birthday
