Bartholomew and the Oobleck
by Dr. Seuss
Bartholomew and the Oobleck Paragraphs 94-97 Summary
- 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?
