Description - The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss
Some of the Sneetches have bellies with stars, but the plain-bellied ones have none upon thars! But an unexpected visitor soon leads them to discover they're not that different after all, in the first tale in this classic collection of stories. The Star-Bellied Sneetches have bellies with Stars, but the Plain-Bellied Sneetches don't, and the two just can't seem to get along. Rivalries rocket when Sylvester McMonkey McBean steps in to prey on their prejudices, but in the end we realise that prejudice is nothing more than a ridiculous waste of time. The first in a series of splendiferous Seussian stories.

Author Biography - Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist 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 successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
