Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories
by Dr. Seuss
Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories The Big Brag, Lines 23 – 33 Summary
- Big Bear, of course, is having none of it—none of it, we say. He challenges the rabbit to put his money where his mouth or, um, ears are.
- And, lo and behold, in another departure from the previous stories, the rabbit actually does it. He sticks his ears up and listens intently.
- In fact, he breaks a sweat doing so, which would have been a cardinal sin for the vain Gertrude McFuzz.
- If you're noticing a lot more dialogue than in most Seuss stories, that's because this is all about comparison and challenge. Smack talk is a must.
