Synopises

Dr. Seuss on the Loose is a triple treat. "The Sneetches" are ostrich-like beings who live on beaches. Some have stars on their bellies and think they're superior to their star-less cousins, until a stranger turns the Sneetch community topsy-turvy and makes everyone truly equal. "The Zax" are two stubborn creatures who absolutely refuse to step aside for each other when they cross paths. And "Green Eggs and Ham" is the Seuss classic about the wily Sam-I-Am whose favorite dish is an abomination. Until it's finally tasted, and savored!
