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!
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.
Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses. The Express
