  • "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. Following the Sneetches, a South-Going Zax and a North-Going Zax seem determined to butt heads on the prairie of
    Prax. Then there's the tongue-twisting story of Mrs. McCave--you know, the one who had 23 sons and named them all Dave.
    (She realizes that she'd be far less confused had she given them different names, like Marvin O'Gravel Balloon Face or
    Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate.) 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. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
