9780007173143: Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories: Yellow Back Book (Dr Seuss - Yellow Back Book) (Dr. Seuss Yellow Back Books)

In this hilarious book, featuring three timeless fables, Dr. Seuss explores the pitfalls of growing too big for your boots!

With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranking among the UK’s top ten favourite children’s authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a million books sold worldwide.

This delightful book forms part of the third stage in HarperCollins’ major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of six more titles in January 2004, such all-time favourites as The Lorax, The Foot Book and Yertle the Turtle boast bright new covers that incorporate much needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. Yertle the Turtle and other stories belongs to the Yellow Back Book range.

About the Author:

Theodor Seuss Giesel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendant in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humourist 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.

From the Back Cover:

'Featuring three tales in one volume, and packed with zany artwork and rolling rhymes, this hilarious storybook will delight young children aged 3 and over.'

Between it’s pages the will meet King Yertle the Turtle who’s ambitions to be master of all he sees are thwarted by a turtle called Mack whose burping literally topples Yertle’s world. Then there is the overweening Gertrude McFuzz whose tail grows too big for her boots. Finally readers will meet a boastful rabbit and bear who soon find out that their bragging just serves to make them look foolish, as indeed bragging does to all of us!
