Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dr. Seuss published over 40 children's books include the bestselling classics Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. His work has been adapted numerous times, including eleven television specials, three feature films, and a Broadway musical.

More About the Author

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 1925, he went to Oxford University, intending to acquire a doctorate in literature. At Oxford, Geisel met Helen Palmer, whom he wed in 1927. Upon his return to America later that year, Geisel published cartoons and humorous articles for Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at that time. His cartoons also appeared in major magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. Geisel gained national exposure when he won an advertising contract for an insecticide called Flit. He coined the phrase, "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" which became a popular expression.

Geisel published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937, after 27 publishers rejected it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and three Caldecott Honors, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 books. While Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, Dr. Seuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

J'avais cru que ce n'était pas possible de traduire Dr. Seuss en français. Pourtant Anne-Laure Fournier le Ray a réussi à traduire « Green Eggs and Ham » sans perdant ni rythme ni rime caractéristique de Dr. Seuss et en laissant intacte le sens et contexte de cette oeuvre. « Ce Sam-c'est moi » est toujours le même : déterminé et inébranlable en face de son adversaire grincheux qui refuse implacablement les délices culinaires verts avec un déluge de phrases négatives telles que « Je n'en veux pas, ni ici, ni là. / Je n'en veux pas à aucun endroit. »
Je dois admettre que les premières fois que je l'ai lu je devais m'accoutumer aux petits différences entre cette traduction et la version originelle. Par exemple, au lieu de « I do not like green eggs and ham./ I do not like them, Sam-I-am » on dit « Je n'aime pas les oeufs verts au jambon. Et quand je dis non, c'est non. » Un peu différent oui, mais également satisfaisant pour les tout-petits qui se réjouiront d'écouter mille façons de dire « Je n'en mangerai pas ! » Les grandes personnes prendront plaisir à lire ce livre aussi.
******
I didn't think it was possible to translate Dr. Seuss into french. However Anne-Laure Fournier Le Ray was able to translate "Green Eggs and Ham" without losing the rhythm or rhyme characteristic of Dr. Seuss and leaving the meaning and context of this work intact. "Sam-c'est moi" is the same as ever: determined and unshakeable in the face of his grumpy opponent who relentlessly refuses the green culinary delights with a flood of negative phrases such as "Je n'en veux pas, ni ici, ni là. / Je n'en veux pas à aucun endroit.

This is not an exact translation but it is very close. What I like is that the verse has the rhythm of the original book. The printing and paper is also very good quality.

While I don't read or speak much French, I was able to make out enough of the text to be able to tell that they even managed to get the translation to rhyme. This is a gift for my niece who is going to language immersion studies this summer. I thought some light reading would make a nice birthday gift. Since she is 20 years old, I also purchased The Count of Monte Cristo and Chocolat in French.
