Written and illustrated in Dr. Seuss’ unimatable style, full of off-the-wall humour and bizarre creatures, this delightful story tells of a young boy’s outrageous boast about the variety of eggs he puts in his omlettes.
The list of ingredients includes eggs of the Stroodel, whose sort of a stork but with fur like a poodle, and of the moth-watching Sneth – a bird who’s so big she scares people to death!
First published in the USA in 1953, this story has only previously been published in the UK as part of the Dr. Seuss Storybook.

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 one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.
