Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories

from the manufacturer

Dr. Seuss presents three modern fables in the rhyming favorite Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories. The collection features tales about greed (Yertle the Turtle), vanity (Gertrude McFuzz), and pride (The Big Brag). In no other book does a small burp have such political importance! Yet again, Dr. Seuss proves that he and classic picture books go hand in hand.

from via

Yet more wisdom cast down from high atop Mt. Seuss, this cheerful trio of tales teaches some valuable lessons in humility--thanks to a sharp-eyed worm, a bragging bear and rabbit, a fuzzy-tailed bird, and a couple hundred turtles led by their foolish King Yertle. Yertles story leads off with his attempt to build a bigger kingdom on the backs of his loyal subjects (literally). King of everything he can see, Yertle orders his turtles to stack up under him to build a towering throne. (He made each turtle stand on another ones back and he piled them all up in a nine-turtle stack. ) But a plain little turtle named Mack--stuck at the bottom--decides hes had enough. (I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down on the bottom we, too, should have rights!) Following Yertles downfall, a whiny girl-bird named Gertrude McFuzz wishes she had two feathers, just like Miss Lolla-Lee-Lou: One droopy-droop feather. Thats all that she had. And, oh! That one feather made Gertrude so sad. But even when Gertrude gets her wish--and then some--she finds that vanity has its price. Meanwhile, in The Big Brag, a proud rabbit and an even-prouder bear duke it out in a battle of the senses, arguing over whos the best of the beasts, only to get their clever comeuppance from a wild-eyed little worm. (Ages 4 to 8)
