Egh. That's what I came away with after reading this Dr. Seuss book for the first time. Maybe it's because I can't abide scrambled eggs but I just didn't relate to this book as I have done so many others of his. It also reminded me too much of If I Ran the Circus/Zoo and I found Peter T. Hooper rather annoying. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have liked him very much even when young but now I found him almost insufferable.
But I loved the illustrations and the creatures. I particularly loved the Stroodel and the Ham-ikka-Schnim-ikka-Schnam-ikka Schnopp. The rhymes were good and I feel I should have really enjoyed this.
