Different Fish for Different Folks 

  • In the beginning, we meet some fish.
  • The fish are one, the fish are two.
  • Oh, and the fish are red; the fish are blue. Just in case you were wondering.
  • A cast of stars swims by with different colors, shapes, ages and moods.
  • There's even a fish that is very, very bad. (Hey, there's one in every bunch.)
  • All in all, it's a whole hodge-podge thing we've got going on here.
  • This section ends with the repetition of the epigraph, about how "funny things are everywhere" (30).
  • You're tellin' us, Seuss.
