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.
Oh my gosh! It is really amazing
The beauty of Dr. Seuss is the sing-song cadence of the rhyme. In this recording, that pattern is absent, completely. This is a dramatization set to music, the cheapest to license classical music they could find. This absolutely destroys the beautiful simplicity of the original. The is over-produced tripe.
