  • The Jumping Jampaloo: Seuss’s most controversial book featuring gratuitous use of the word “jampaloo,” which in the Seuss lexicon is comparable to “motherfucker”
  • Do As You’re Told: The story of a boy who immediately eats the green eggs and ham placed in front of him without getting lippy
  • And To Think That I Saw It On Bourbon Street: Marco pays $2 to watch Sneetches do it
  • Ibiza Nights: A memoir
  • Pigs In Wigs: A beloved piglet is able to put on his own hairpiece despite his struggles with stage III bone cancer
