Overview

Ever wonder what green eggs and ham really taste like? They're yummy. And now everyone can whip up a batch for themselves using this fabulous cookbook. Filled with simple, scrumptious, wacky recipes for such foods as Cat in the Hat Pudding and Moose Juice and Schlopp, this unique cookbook will have the whole family hamming it up in the kitchen.  Each recipe is accompanied by the original verse that inspired it, and the pages are laminated to protect against getting splatters of Sneetch Salad, Oobleck, and Solla Sollew Stew.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With Georgeanne Brennan's Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook, illus. by Dr. Seuss, photos by Frankie Frankeny, readers can find out whether they like the title dish plus more than 40 others. Spiral-bound inside with a paper-over-board covering, and crammed with kooky concoctions, kids will be scarfing down The Cat in the Hat's Blueberry Bumplings (aka scones) and Kartoom Croquettes (a chicken-and-peanut mixture shaped into logs) from If I Ran the Zoo.

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
Working from illustrations taken from the original books, these wildly outrageous recipes for over forty www.seussville.com recipes will entice every adult and kid to try cooking up everything from "Scrambled Eggs Super" and "Blueberry Bumplings" to lunches and snacks of the zaniest kinds. Dinners include "Who-Roast" (but no photo of the chicken with mushrooms stuffed under the skin before baking) and desserts include "Sneetch Treats" and "Who-Pudding." If your school includes edible book reports, or if teachers have discovered www.cookingupreading.com as a classroom resource to join up books and cookery, this book is a must. If your school celebrates Seuss Day in March, this book is a must. For home-ec classes that have gotten too heavily invested in "Welsh Rarebit" or baking powder biscuits, this is a must. From the "Green Eggs" (real hardboiled eggs with an enhanced yolk of guacamole) to the "Cindy Lou Who" cornflake Christmas wreaths, this will delight cooks and readers of all kinds, all sizes, all ages.
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6
This cookbook goes far beyond what one might expect. Many children have probably made green eggs and ham using copious amounts of green food coloring, but here, the ham is green thanks to a coating made from cilantro and tomatillos, and the eggs' usually yellow yolks are covered by a mound of guacamole. Many other recipes are equally creative; the Pink Yink Ink Drink is yummy, healthy, and sure to be a hit. While some of the connections to the Dr. Seuss books are a bit of a stretch, all include quotes that clarify their ties to specific stories. As with many cookbooks that are written to fit a predetermined theme, there is a wide range in both the difficulty and complexity of the recipes. Adult assistance will be needed for many of them, and several will send parents to the store for ingredients (shallots, rock shrimp, clams). However, the dishes' playful names and inventive presentations will have children trying new foods and adults enjoying the flavorful combinations. A great addition to the world of book-themed cookbooks.

Having grown up on a steady diet of Dr. Seuss, I must say that this cookbook is the perfect icing on the cake! I look forward to trying out the recipes with my children, themselves Dr. Seuss fans. My only comment is, I wish there had been even more recipes!
