Product Description:

"Dr. Seuss chronicles the feud between the Yooks and the Zooks from slingshots through sophisticated weaponry, until each side has the capacity to destroy the world. The language amuses, the drawings are zesty and humorous, and the demand for this book will be large."--School Library Journal.

"Provocative, packs an allegorical punch. The parade of increasingly elaborate (and ridiculous) armaments makes a telling point."--Booklist.  

About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL--aka Dr. Seuss--is one of the most beloved children's book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You'll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults.

LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss's long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot's Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates.

Dr Seuss was a man ahead of his times. He shares his rhythmic, rhyming stories with an undeniable compassion towards the world. If only we took heed to his words.

The Butter Battle Book is a fantastic resource for teachers who may be exploring learning areas such as war, the cold war, technology, problems, problem solving, culture, citizenship,conflict resolution, and how mountains can be made out of mole hills.

The superbly written ending leaves the destiny of the Zooks and the Yooks in your hands.
