Quote #4

My hat is old.
My teeth are gold.
And now
my story
is all told. (138-142)

In this section, a character introduces himself with some descriptions of his appearance. He declares that his hat is old and that his teeth are gold, smiling all the while as though he could not be prouder. And why shouldn't he be proud? The whole idea of the book is that we notice and acknowledge differences in appearance, yes. But there's no need to judge other people, creatures, and inanimate objects based on appearance. That's just un-Seussian.
