I'm not surprised that this book is still a childhood favorite after 49 years. I am amazed that this book consists of only 50 words and was written on a bet. After Dr. Seuss wrote the Cat In The Hat using only 225 words, his publisher wagered $50 that Dr. Seuss could not write a book using only fifty words. He accepted the challenged and thus we have Green Eggs and Ham.
The Cat In the Hat was also one of my favorite childhood books. The Cat In The Hat turned 50 in 2007. This book has sold over 10.5 million copies and has been published in more than 20 languages. I read both of these books to my grandson this week-end. Green Eggs and Ham was his favorite. He handed the book to me over and over. I'll be adding both to his library, which I started for him at birth.
