9780007133178: Green Eggs and Ham: A Lift-and-Look Book

Written using a vocabulary of only 50 words, Dr. Seuss’ second best selling book of all time is brought joyously to life in this colourful board book. Featuring lots of fabulous flaps and silly stickers, it provides a fun way to introduce young children aged 2 and over to the wacky world of Dr. Seuss.

Packed with Dr. Seuss’s unique blend of zany humour, riotous rhyme and wacky illustrations, the book tells of Sam-I-am’s relentless pursuit of a grumpy individual who refuses to eat a plate of green eggs and ham. As Sam-I-am’s perseverance wins the day, we are all reminded that we cannot really know what we like until we have tried it!

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)


Children's' favourites may come and go, but the Dr Seuss books are in a class of their own. His quirky, idiosyncratic books continue to entrance new generations. Green Eggs and Ham is one of the perennial Dr Seuss favourites.
