With his unmistakable gift for rhyme, Dr. Seuss creates a hysterical and energetic way for beginning readers to dive into the joy of reading. This book comes with the following warning: "This is a book you READ ALOUD to find out just how smart your tongue is. The first time you read it, don't go fast! This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble."

This is in my top 5 Dr Seuss books. It MUST be read out loud, preferably to other people, and as fast as you can without stumbling. You think you're there but when Luke's duck licks lakes...
It's an excellent tongue twister, and great fun. Cool pictures. Most excellent.

Normally I wouldn't review a Dr. Zeus (as my father-in-law calls him) book. However this one has had my number for at least 20 years. Tonight though sports fans I was finally able to pitch a no hitter, bowl a 300, I shut out Dr. Zeus and had a quarterback passer rating of 158.3. Yes I made it through this entire tongue twisting nightmare sans one mistake. Now if I could make it through the Butter Battle Book without losing all hope for humanity I'll be a happy reader indeed.

This is the first book my 5 y/o daughter read from beginning to end, with little help from me in some words. She was very satisfied that she was able to read her first book!.

Too difficult for my 3 y/o to understand. It's all about the rhyming...

Useful & remarkably inventive early reader, consisting of delightful, original tongue twisters, although not Dr. Seuss's best work.
