What Was I Scared of? Hardcover – July 22, 1997
Definitely a candidate for the all-time silliest of Dr. Seuss's books, What Was I Scared Of? is the extremely unscary tale of... a pair of empty pants! Just try to keep from giggling when reading this story aloud--we dare you. For starters, practice with "And there I was! / Caught in the Snide! / And in that dreadful place, / those spooky, empty pants and I were standing face to face!" The small size and sturdy cover make this tiny tome just right for tucking away in a bag for traveling or an evening out. Perfect for an overnight camping trip, this book puts fears in their proper perspective, and will have everyone laughing out loud. --Jill Lightner
From the Inside Flap
r of empty green trousers doing standing by itself in the woods? Or riding a bike in Grin-itch? Or fishing on Roover River? The narrator certainly doesn't want to find out but wherever he goes, he's haunted by the spooky empty pants. Finally, when the two find themselves hiding from each other in a Snide bush the terrified narrator realizes, "I was just as strange to him as he was strange to me." This little Seussian gem, plucked from the back of The Sneetches and Other Stories, shines on it own as it delivers a timeless message about fear and tolerance.
