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.

Yertle - Well loved Seuss work . One turtle wants to be "king of the pond" at all costs.

I can't believe I hadn't discovered Yertle until recently (a Seuss book I'd never ever read). It's a great one! Mack the turtle is a true hero and the final words are touching.
