Bartholomew and the Oobleck

Bartholomew and the Oobleck


by Dr. Seuss

Bartholomew and the Oobleck Paragraphs 94-97 Summary

Under Oobleck 

  • You know when your oobleck is as big as footballs, you've got a real problem on your hands.
  • Everyone's in trouble—farmers, goats, geese, you name it.
  • But it's the last line of this passage that's really key: "There was nothing Bartholomew Cubbins could do out there."
  • This implies that the real challenge isn't standing up to the oobleck. It's standing up to something (or someone) inside the castle itself.
  • See where this is going?
