5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


When Sam-I-am persits in pestering a grumpy grouch to eat a plate of green eggs and ham, perseverance wins the day, teaching us all that we cannot know what we like until we have tried it!

With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years.

Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.

As the first step in a major rebrand programme, HarperCollins is relaunching 17 of Dr. Seuss's best-selling books, including such perennial favourites as The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham and Fox in Socks.

In response to consumer demand, the bright new cover designs incorporate much needed guidance on reading levels, with the standard paperbacks divided into three reading strands - Blue Back Books for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. Green Eggs and Ham belongs to the Green Back Book range.

Sam I am I really like green eggs and ham - good fun to read to children (if you need the excuse) whether on a train or in the rain etc.

Review by

I absolutely adore this book. Dr. Seuss is by far one of my favorite child authors. In this book, Sam I am tries to get his friend to try some green eggs and ham. He doesn't give in easily though. By the end of the book, he tries them only to get Sam I am to stop bothering him. It turns out he does like green eggs and ham. This is a cute story on how you should try new things and not assume you don't like them because you've never had them.
