From the Publisher
Dr. Seuss presents three modern fables in the rhyming favorite
Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories. The collection
features tales about greed ("Yertle the Turtle"), vanity ("Gertrude
McFuzz"), and pride ("The Big Brag"). In no other book does a small
burp have such political importance! Yet again, Dr. Seuss proves
that he and classic picture books go hand in hand.

From Our Editors
The world of children's literature would be far less brilliant and
playful were it not for the fertile imagination of Dr. Seuss. For more than 60 years,
his wonderfully wacky storybooks have been dazzling legions of
children, while teaching them the very important skill of reading.
Featuring the master's frolicsome illustrations and verse, Yertle the
Turtle collects three modern fables including
"Gertrude McFuzz," "Yertle the Turtle" and "The Big Brag."
