9780001720398: Green Eggs and Ham: 40th Anniversary Edition

With a rhyming vocabulary of only 50 words, this hilarious books 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 Dr. Seuss’s unique blend of zany artwork, riotous rhyme and off-the-wall humour, this special anniversary edition celebrates the first publication of one of the doctor’s best-loved books, making it the perfect keepsake for all lovers of Dr. Seuss, young and old.

Written as part of the Beginner Book range, it is not only a funny story, but is also ideal for helping young children aged three and upwards learn to read. 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!

Review:

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)

Review:

Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses.
