The Sneetches And Other Stories

The Sneetches
Now, the Star-Belly Sneetches / Had bellies with stars. / The Plain-Belly Sneetches / Had none upon thars. This collection of four of Dr. Seuss’s most winning stories begins with that unforgettable tale of the unfortunate Sneetches, bamboozled by one Sylvester McMonkey McBean (“the Fix-it-up Chappie”), who teaches them that pointless prejudice can be costly.

The Zax
Following the Sneetches, a South-Going Zax and a North-Going Zax seem determined to butt heads on the prairie of Prax.

Too Many Daves
Then there’s the tongue-twisting story of Mrs. McCave – you know, the one who had 23 sons and named them all Dave. (She realises that she’d be far less confused had she given them different names, like Marvin O’Gravel Balloon Face or Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate.)

What Was I Scared Of?
A slightly spooky adventure involving a pair of haunted trousers – What Was I Scared Of? – closes out the collection. Sneetches and Other Stories is Seuss at his best, with distinctively wacky illustrations and ingeniously weird prose.
