This book contains more wisdom than 1000 other children books taken together 🙂
One of the many things this book does, is that it makes people think. Think by themselves and for themselves. Something which is not encouraged today. Like all Dr. Seuss books, it exposes stupidity and evil. In this case, of building unnecessary walls between groups of people. At the very end it shows how dangerous it is to follow the leader blindly (the whole population of the Yooks went obediently to the hole in the ground, quietly, in line, one by one, as instructed by the leader). Wonderful book. Just what the hungry minds of children, discouraged from thinking on the daily basis, need a lot!
