I guess being a teacher for 25 years has its benefits! Fun quiz! Try some harder titles McGelligots Pool, I had trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew for a few!
May 15th, 2010 at 05:01 GMT
great quiz! I loved it :) but just a question, could you not make a few exceptions when accepting titles, for instance - just 'yurtle the turtle' (without having the addition of 'and other stories') and the same thing for the sneetches?
Sep 16th, 2010 at 23:22 GMT
Have to get rid of the Google Error on top, at least that's how it reads on my screen, and while I cannot condone the omission of Thidwick, this is great, five globes! :)
Sep 17th, 2010 at 20:02 GMT
I'm so glad you're not accepting "The Grinch" or "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" for "How The Grinch Stole Christmas!"
Sep 18th, 2010 at 16:34 GMT
If you're going to accept shorter answers for some of these, why not be lenient about came vs. comes in the Cat in the Hat sequel, and the vs. an in the Horton book? Great quiz!
Sep 18th, 2010 at 23:51 GMT
I agree some shorter alternate answers would be nice, like just "Mulberry Street" for "And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street," but I still enjoyed this quiz though!

definitely nomination worthy! Consider accepting "The Sneeches", as not many people remember the silent T.
Sep 20th, 2010 at 10:10 GMT
Glad you are keeping the full answers, was disappointed when 'One fish, Two fish' was enough to get me that one. How can something like #5 work unless you insist on the full title!
Sep 21st, 2010 at 18:33 GMT
Good selection of books! I can't believe I've lived this long without ever reading some of these! If you'll excuse me, I'm now heading to my friendly neighbourhood library to catch up...
Oct 5th, 2010 at 20:11 GMT
I got all of them except "sneetches", kept on spelling it "sneeches". Sad of me to remember this many.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:11 GMT
I can't believe I missed "The Foot Book"! I loved that book when I was little, and I knew it was all about all kinds of feet, but ironically, I could not remember the title.
Please be more lenient on the Horton title and accept "Horton Hatches an Egg," especially since articles don't count on Sporcle and just "horton hatches egg" would be accepted. GREAT quiz!

Horton Hears A ... WHA???
Oct 18th, 2012 at 17:52 GMT
I got them all, but definitely some tricky ones in there. Why Horton Hatches An Egg rather than Horton Hears A Who? Why two Cat in the Hat books instead of another original Seuss? I couldn't remember what was in the pocket...splocket? sprocket? rocket? whocket? I also had trouble spelling Sneeches and ... dang, Seuss, why did you spell things so strangely? *g*
Oct 18th, 2012 at 17:57 GMT
"Fox in Sox." What do you mean, no? Oh... socks.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 17:59 GMT
And to think I forgot about Mulberry St.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 18:05 GMT
Got a wocket in your pocket,
Keep coolly cool, boy!
Oct 18th, 2012 at 18:15 GMT
I can't believe I missed "There's a Wocket in My Pocket", considering the helpful illustration! Favorite Seuss book not included: "Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now?"
Oct 18th, 2012 at 18:30 GMT
My favorite Seuss books are "Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?" and "Go Dog Go"
Oct 18th, 2012 at 18:37 GMT
Q_phever: gotta love west side story!
Oct 18th, 2012 at 20:35 GMT
Is it really a harm to accept "Horton Hatches AN Egg"? I thought Sporcle automatically overlooks things like that.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 20:53 GMT
Yertle the Turtle remains the best book ever written on the subject of turtle stacking.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 20:54 GMT
@MMayes: Go Dog Go was not by Dr. Seuss. It's by P. D. Eastman.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 21:30 GMT
great quiz green eggs and ham is great sam i am. grinch steals christmas is a holiday tradition in book or on record or the great tv special.
Oct 18th, 2012 at 23:53 GMT
"Cat in the Hat" not acceptable?
Oct 18th, 2012 at 23:55 GMT
Since this quiz is extremely anal, I would also point out that the title of the actual book is "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish". No commas.
Oct 19th, 2012 at 00:30 GMT
I tried all kinds of variations of "Horton sits on the egg"... oops, that's just a song title from Seussical
Oct 19th, 2012 at 00:57 GMT
I *guess* I can understand not taking "Horton hatches AN Egg," but could you at least consider taking misspellings like "Yurtle"?
Oct 19th, 2012 at 01:10 GMT
Had all but a couple of these when I was young (didn't get "Oh, the Places You'll Go" until I was about to go to college). And for all of the people concerned about "AN" vs "THE", you do realize that this quiz allows you to skip words like these. It took Horton Hatches Egg when I typed it. Thanks, tikalora, for the trip down memory lane!
Oct 19th, 2012 at 02:11 GMT
It was so tragic, the way they hopped on pop.
Oct 19th, 2012 at 02:39 GMT
I kept trying "Surfing with the Sneeches" before I realized that was the name of a play I worked on based on the book. I actually like it that the quiz requires things to be spelled right. Great quiz, now I want to go scoop up all these books at the library and read them again!
Oct 19th, 2012 at 02:49 GMT
Wocket in my pocket was always mine and my sister's favourite, we read that thing all the time. I remember we ripped out the page with the Bofa because he gave us nightmares. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlmyfyjc7hM&t=1m0s
Oct 19th, 2012 at 03:42 GMT
A quiz! A quiz! I wish you'd try/ Would you try it for some pie?/ Would you try it for some honey?/ Would you try it for a bunny?/ What's that you say?/ You took this quiz?/ I'm so happy that you did!
Oct 19th, 2012 at 03:56 GMT
I made something similar for a pub quiz one time. Great quiz, with some of the small exceptions noted above. I was definitely looking for Mr. Brown and The Butter Battle Book.
Oct 19th, 2012 at 15:05 GMT
"Smithers, there's a rocket in my pocket!"
Oct 20th, 2012 at 21:25 GMT
Love that you did Horton Hatches the Egg instead of Hears a Who. I always loved the egg one best. I even have a stuffed Horton that sits in a nest with an egg you can put stuff in.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 14:18 GMT
@cmkeller: Or on the subject of peaceful revolution against dictators, or of the power of the individual against the state, or of the perils of ambition, the consequences of vanity, and the pointlessness of egotism.

@Vails: My comment was a Simpsons reference, which I assume was recognized by the folks who up-voted it.
Nov 26th, 2012 at 23:19 GMT
Seems to me a lot of us here are whining about the one they missed; just nice for them that they didn't miis the grinch. Noone realizes how good they have it these days. . .
