"Creates fun and stimulates imagination"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Yertle the Turtle is fun. Stimulates imagination. I love the silliness of the stories.


In this book, featuring three timeless fables, Dr Seuss explores the pitfalls of growing too big for your boots. The text is a "Yellow Back Book", which means that it is suitable for fluent readers aged five and over to enjoy on their own, or for reading aloud to younger children.

Author Biography

Theodor Seuss Giesel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss- was born the son of a park superintendant in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humourist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.
