This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-Am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless sceptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savoured. He tries every manner of presentation with this nouvelle cuisine--in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat--to no avail. Then finally, finally the doubter caves in under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-Am. And guess what? Well, you probably know what happens, but even after reading Green Eggs and Ham for the thousandth time, the climactic realization that green eggs and ham are "so good, so good, you see" is still a rush. As usual, kids will love Dr. Seuss's wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations--and this time, they might even be so moved as to finally take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)
