The Lovereading comment:

A Review by Matt Dickinson, our Guest Editor for January 2013 - One delicious book that I remember from my childhood is The Sneetches by Dr Seuss. It is perfect for reading to a five- to eight-year-old and it packs a meaningful message into a hilarious story. Told in rhyme the story features a bunch of bizarre yellow creatures with stars on their bellies and their downtrodden cousins who don’t have the stars. The snobby ‘star belly sneetches’ take every opportunity to exclude, humiliate and heap derision on their less fortunate neighbours—until a curious character called Sylvester McMonkey McBean comes along with his ‘fix it up machine’. The sly Sylvester convinces the gullible ‘no star’ sneetches to pay him to have stars implanted by his special machine—while charging them handsomely for the pleasure! Then he convinces the original ‘star bellies’ that the new fashion is to have NO star—and so on and so on until the creatures are broke and he can drive away with a fortune!It’s a hilarious story and it has a twist at the end which is quite heartwarming.

Synopsis

The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss

The Star-Bellied Sneetches have bellies with Stars, but the Plain-Bellied Sneetches have none upon thars! Rivalries rocket when Sylvester McMonkey McBean steps in to prey on their prejudices, but in the end we realise that prejudice is nothing more than a rediculous waste of time. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years.

About The Author


Dr. Seuss

“I look at the world through the wrong end of a telescope.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of children learn to read.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a brewer and park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England (where he met his first wife Helen Palmer), he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children`s books and his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937.

His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books collectively known as Beginner Books. In all Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 children’s books during a career that spanned over 50 years, picking up numerous awards, including two Emmy awards for television and a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation along the way.
