2147 Reviews
With a rhyming vocabulary of only 50 words, this hilarious book tells the story of Sam-I-Am's relentless pursuit of a grumpy individual who refuses to eat a plate of green eggs and ham. Packed with a uniquely Seussian blend of zany artwork, riotous rhyme and off-the-wall humour, this miniature hardback edition makes the perfect stocking filler and keepsake for all lovers of Dr. Seuss, young and old. And, as Sam-I-Am's preseverance wins the day, it teaches us all that we cannot really know what we like until we have tried it

About the author (2002)

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
