Review Text

Dr. Seuss turns 50 simple words into magic in this timehonored classic. SamIam won't give up He keeps trying to get the grumpy grownup in the story to taste green eggs and ham. No matter how SamIam presents the green eggs and ham (in a box, with a fox, in the rain, on a train), the curmudgeon refuses to try them. Finally, SamIam's pesky persistence pays off. A crowd of openmouthed onlookers watch in suspense as the old grouch takes a bite. Ands...SAY The old sourpuss's face is wreathed in smiles as he gratefully acknowledges, "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you, thank you, SamIam"Format: Hardcover, 72pp. ISBN: 0394800168 Publisher: Random House, Incorporated Pub. Date: May 1976 Recommend Age Range: 5 to 8

About Dr. Seuss

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of 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 one and only 'The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
