In this story, Bartholomew is a page in the court of King Derwood, who is tired of the rain, sunshine, fog, and snow. The spoiled king wants something new, and what he gets is green, sticky goo--oobleck--that all but ruins his kingdom! That is, until young Bartholomew is courageous enough to stand up to the king and to suggest that he say the two simple words that everyone--even a king--needs to say when they do something wrong.
Written in unrhymed verse, Bartholomew and the Oobleck is a fantastic, funny story with a typically Seussian message--and lots of green goo! This new jacketed edition makes a perfect gift for Seuss fans of all ages, parents who are teaching kids to say 'I'm sorry,' and goo-lovers everywhere!
