Wow. All that just to cover just the first story. And this book has three other lovely tales with more beneath the surface than you might guess. Check out our "Themes" section for some discussion on those stories. And for more on the Sneetches and McBean and his machines, hop on over to our "Character Analyses."
And by the by, if you want to further explore all these issues (we know you do), we recommend picking up Dr. Seuss and Philosophy: Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!, edited by Jacob M. Held. There, you'll find Held's essay on Sneetches as well as discussions on green eggs, thneeds, a couple Whos, and much more. And did we mention you can preview it for free on Google Books? No? Oh. Well that was silly of us, because you absolutely can.
