Inside this very special anniversary edition of Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, you’ll find the complete, original text and illustrations by Dr. Seuss, along with 32 pages of commentary and archival images written and compiled by Charles D. Cohen, the world’s foremost Seuss scholar and collector. Also included for the first time together are two rarely seen Seuss stories: “The Ruckus” about a bird who likes to hear himself talk but has nothing to say, and “The Kindly Snather,” a cautionary tale that points to the perils of greed and sloth. With detailed—even fascinating—footnotes, this is a must-have volume for Seuss fans of all ages.

I love this book. It incorporates a three stories addressing morals and the result of having to be the best the best(which is not always the best) I like how Dr. Seuss was able to make a fun, humorous story addressing real life problems. Read full review

While I was aware of this story and the others in the book as a child, I didn't read this one very often since I didn't own it. I actually asked my fiance to read this to me before bed - and then of course promptly fell asleep, but it was nice nonetheless. I re-read it the next day. Read full review
