I note with dismay that none of the places mentioned in the relevant book include the refrigerator, and none of the itinerant protagonists happen to be batteries. Seuss really dropped the ball on this one.
You have The Butter Battle Book as a poll choice but don’t have One Fish Two Fish? What the actual fuck?!!
Anyways… Happy New Year folks! (I’m waiting for this to become unacceptable as other holiday greetings have, because of all the butthurt people that celebrate the various lunar and other flavors of year.)
Another missed opportunity comes to mind, since I’m on the topic. Clearly, the cat was the obvious hero, and the hat was the most logical location for it to be in. However, with a little creativity and forethought, Seuss could have had a real winner on his hands: The Battery in the Refrigerator.
I guess we can’t all be literary geniuses. Sorry Seuss.
I loved yertle the turtle and other stories not just for the main story but gertrude mcfuzz and the brag book were my real faves. My fac book under the label was hand, hand, finger, thumb but someone else wrote that. I just loved the way my dad would read it and the lyrical rhyming story.
