This is Ann – Digitally remastered, reprinted and for sale.

We had enough trouble getting hold of a copy of this book, so we took the step to get it scanned and remastered and reprinted – and it looks beautiful.

You can buy it through eBay or visit the Malaria Museum Shop.

The booklet is paperback 43 pages, each one is illustrated, printed on 100g/m² paper with 200g/m² cover, staple bound like the original.

The only addition is on the back page where we have added a barcode and some details about the reprint.

No credit is given in the book to the author, Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss), though his style is easy to recognise.

This Is Ann - She's dying to meet you. Dr. Seuss. Malaria.This Is Ann – She’s dying to meet you. Dr. Seuss. Malaria.

Dr. Seuss, This is Ann – a long time coming …

Finally ! 2 years and a couple of favours later, the Malaria Museum is now the proud owner of Dr. Seuss’ “This is Ann”.

After a tip-off from Chris in Rio de Janiero that the book existed and a photo copy of a photo copy to take home I began the hunt to get hold of a copy.

It hasn’t been easy on the Museum budget, but finally, with the further help of Lenore in the USA and Daniel in Ireland we have managed to get a great condition copy.

Thank you to those involved.
