The Sneetches Play

The Sneetches and Other Stories is a collection of stories by American author Dr. Seuss, published in 1953. It is composed of four separate stories with themes of tolerance, diversity, and compromise: “The Sneetches”, “The Zax”, “Too Many Daves”, and “What Was I Scared Of?”. Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.” In 2012 it was ranked number 63 among the “Top 100 Picture Books” in a survey published by School Library Journal – the fifth of five Dr. Seuss books on the list.

The first two stories in the book (“The Sneetches” and “The Zax”) were later adapted, along with Green Eggs and Ham, into 1973’s animated TV musical special Dr. Seuss on the Loose: The Sneetches, The Zax, Green Eggs and Ham with Hans Conried voicing both Zaxes and Paul Winchell and Bob Holt voicing the Sneetches and Sylvester McMonkey McBean respectively.
