Green Eggs and Ham

Editor Bennett Cerf challenged Dr. Seuss to write a book using no more than 50 different words. The result:  “I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you. Thank you, Sam-I-am.”  Green Eggs and Ham!, the children’s book by Dr. Seuss, published in August of 1960, had sold over 8 million copies around the world by 2016.
