KIRKUS REVIEW

Three fables by the inimitable Dr. Seuss, which originally appeared in Redbook magazine, are now available, by popular demand, in this book-form collection. There is Yertle, the despot turtle, who has a mighty fall when Nack, just an ordinary sort of turtle, stands up for his rights. And there is Gertrude McFuzz, a girl-bird who has a hankering for a many splendored tail and gets one, but finds that she can no longer fly. And finally, there is the sharp little worm who teaches a bragging bear and a boasting rabbit a thing or two about modesty. A must for both remedial reading and reading aloud, the sweeping illustrations and the spontaneous verse of these three stories make them a welcome addition to that nonsensical but wise, wise world of the always popular Dr. Senss.
